Meet the hosts: Andrew Marshall and Wendy Stuckey

Andrew and Wendy arrived in Marlborough, NZ, with their children, in mid-2015, after previously living in South Australia’s Barossa Valley and Seattle, USA.

Version 2As a native New Zealander, who has spent most of his adult life abroad, the move to Marlborough marked something of a homecoming for Andrew; while for Wendy, an Australian, it represented a migration to a place for which she has held great fondness, since first visiting NZ as a teenager hitch-hiking her way around the South Island.

In the short time they have been living in Marlborough, both have grown to love the lifestyle of the region: the pace of life; the people; and access to some of the country’s most appealing attractions.

Wendy is highly regarded as a winemaker and occupies the position of Chief Winemaker with Constellation NZ, while Andrew has a background in residential architecture and enjoys cogitating on projects that may or may not ever see the light of day!

They have travelled extensively over the years, first meeting in the mid-80’s (through a shared passion for skiing), in the Swiss village of Grindelwald. Their love of travel and interest in meeting people from different cultures, provides a background well-suited to warmly welcoming guests to the region they now call home.
