Being Kiwis we both grew up in Canterbury, Lee was a city girl and Geoff a farm boy. Lee was working as a nurse and Geoff was working as an aircraft engineer in the Royal NZ Airforce when we met. We married in Christchurch in 1980 and moved to Marlborough for what we thought was a three month stint, however it turned into 38 years. We brought up our four fabulous children on an orchard in the Awatere Valley which later became a vineyard, we later sold the property to concentrate on the tour company in Blenheim.
After 38 years almost to the day, we have moved back to Canterbury as a central location to be closer to our family and grandchildren and to keep developing the small group tours and personally guided tour business.
