Dayvinleigh the business

Dayvinleigh is a diverse business with many parts … a vineyard producing quality Pinot Noir, a tourism consultancy, a reliable vineyard contracting service and boutique vegetable producer. 


Situated on the banks of the Wairau River in Marlborough, Dayvinleigh is home to the Johnston clan.


The name Dayvinleigh comes from a blending of first and middle names, Kevin David and Tracy Leigh.


The aim for the business is “To be leading a successful business venture growing and creating things that convey our passion and pride for the land we call home.”

The plan to get there is by…

  • Channelling our energies, skills and expertise into creating a rewarding and enriching lifestyle for ourselves and that will inspire others.

  • To be recognised by our customers and business peers as being reputable business people creating high-quality products with a reputation for treating everyone and everything with integrity and respect.

  • Continuously challenging ourselves to push the business forward to achieve financial success and emotional reward.
