The name Highfield originates from the Walsh family, who hailed from Ireland. They purchased their 365-acre Marlborough farm in 1935 and named it Highfield after an area near Galway Bay in their homeland.

On Highfield farm the Walsh family grew crops, grazed stock and bred horses, eventually handing over the reins to their son Bill and his wife Barbara. Bill was of an entrepreneurial nature, always ready to consider a new venture, and in the mid ?€˜70's when he heard that a major New Zealand wine company was considering planting grapes in Marlborough he decided to try his hand.

Bill's first planting was 2 ?½ acres of Muller Thurgau, a medium sweet German grape variety that produced wine meant for drinking young. Before long Highfield's plantings increased. Quite by accident, Bill and another local grape grower discovered some ?€œrogue?€ grapes amongst the Muller Thurgau vines in the vineyard. Unsure as to just exactly what these infiltrators were, they took cuttings. The plants that subsequently grew proved to be none other than Sauvignon Blanc. The quality of the wine produced from these grapes encouraged the Walsh family to make and market wine under their own label.
