Mark Mason (Mac)

Mark’s passion had always been skiing. The family farm had diversified into viticulture in the early 1980’s and in an effort to curb his skiing obsession and direct his career elsewhere, Marks Mother (Doris) and Sister (Suzie) enrolled him as far away from the slopes as possible – Roseworthy College in South Australia. Armed with a Diploma in Wine Marketing, Mark returned to Hawkes Bay and established Sacred Hill Winery with his Brother David in 1986. After working on the Sacred Hill project for over a dozen years he again decided it was time to go skiing, however the planned break from the wine industry didn’t go so well… When in Central, he fell in love with the 145 hectare block which is now home to Quest Farm.
