Geoff established Riversun Nursery in 1982 and over the last three decades, his tireless focus on plant health and quality has positioned Riversun as the premium supplier of certified grafted grapevines to the NZ wine industry.


In 2013 as Managing Director, Geoff set Riversun on a new journey - to become carbon negative, zero waste and ‘TRULY SUSTAINABLE’ by 2020. To reach this ambitious goal, Geoff and the Riversun team are bringing together world-class plantsmanship and leading-edge science - think molecular and micro-biology hooking up with soil science, bio-plastics, bio-mass heating, organics and bio-dynamics - plus lots more.
