Mt. Beautiful

Our Story

David and Leigh Teece

There's No Place Like New Zealand

Scholar Entrepreneur, and New Zealand native David Teece, and his wife Leigh, believe his homeland “produces some of the best products in the world and aficionados everywhere should have a chance to experience them.” 

Mt. Beautiful Winery from North Canterbury reflects their passion for New Zealand. By producing elegant, certified-sustainable, estate-grown wines, David and Leigh have found a way to truly encapsulate in the bottle, the climate and the richness of the land. Mt Beautiful is uncompromising in quality and faithful to the terroir. 

Pioneers of a New Region
As pioneers of the North Canterbury region, Mt. Beautiful's owners David and Leigh were looking to invest in David’s homeland in a way that would allow expression of their passion for farm-to-table food and wine, while energizing the community to which they are so genuinely committed. By creating Mt. Beautiful Winery and adopting certified-sustainable practices, we are able to be dedicated guardians of the land, and good stewards of our heritage.
