Chris McLean

Compliance and Safety Manager

Chris joined New Zealand Wineries Limited in 2018, coming off over 10 years food manufacturing experience at one of the world’s largest dairy factories, where they processed up to 15 million litres of milk a day

The 2019 harvest will be Chris’ first after moving to sunny Blenheim in August. He is looking forward to seeing the transformation in Blenheim during the harvest period.

Originally from the deep south (Invercargill), Chris uses his dairy industry experience to bring a different viewpoint to the wine industry, while working on refining his palate too.

Chris enjoys the friendly people at NZW and the opportunities Blenheim’s climate allows for outside of work too.
