Hello, and welcome to m.a.u wines
My name is Marc Alexander Udy (m.a.u).
After making wine for several high-quality producers in NZ and Australia since 2006, with the 2011 vintage in Vosne Romanee, Burgundy, thrown in the mix, I finally plucked up the courage to follow my dream and started m.a.u wines in 2021 with my partner Camilla.
Over the years I have been privileged to work under, over and alongside some wonderful people, winemakers, cellar hands, front of house, cellar door staff and vineyard teams. Ihave had the privilege of working with some of the best grapes in Australia, New Zealandand Burgundy but I have always had the burning desire to start my own venture. I didn’t want to look back and think if only. The wines I make, unapologetically, are for me to enjoybut I obviously hope they bring joy, intrigue and happiness to some of you too. They are my experiences, understanding and expressions of the wine varieties and styles I love to drink. My dream is to source the best possible fruit in New Zealand, for the varieties I love, andproduce textural, thought provoking, age worthy wines from our little slice of heaven in Clevedon, 30mins southeast of Auckland. Clevedon is a little village that shares similar soilsand climate to Waiheke and is currently (Puriri Hills) producing some of New Zealand’s most outstanding Bordeaux wines. The fact that Clevedon is 35mins from Auckland’s amazing restaurant, bar and entertainment scene is a much appreciated and loved cherry on top!
Thanks for visiting our website and I hope that you try, enjoy and love our wines as much as we do.
Marc & Camilla
