Meet the Team

The Pinot Grove team consists of Matthew Ryan and Linda Virtue.

We have strived to offer home and section packages that enable you to enjoy the warm climate that Martinborough has to offer whilst relaxing in a contemporary and private environment. We have each been drawn to Martinborough for different reasons, but we are all passionate about visiting, staying and living here. We have a wide range of experience in renovating, building and landscaping properties, both locally and around New Zealand.

Our goal with Pinot Grove is to offer a high quality place to live or stay at an achievable price. We each bring differing skills to the team and to realising our vision of a place that you’ll love to call home.

 

An excerpt from Dominion Post article:
Matthew Ryan, a Wellington businessman, said the project, his first foray into developing, confirms a connection he has with the boutique Wairarapa town. Seventeen years ago he bought Carrigafoyle, a property on The Terrace that John Martin the founder of Martinborough built and gave to his daughter as a wedding present in 1902. Ryan sold his half-share in the home last year, around the time he bought Pinot Grove. “Maybe it’s Martinborough calling me back,” he said.
