    Our stories

    Matt Large

    A hands-on, adventure-seeking and food-loving family man, Matt Large is always busy. A Marlborough local, Matt travelled the globe, experiencing vintages in Europe and South Africa before returning home where he lives with his wife Adele and three kids. His love for wine and getting his hands dirty saw him and his family plant a hectare of Sauvignon Blanc in their own backyard. On quieter days, you’ll find him diving for scallops and enjoying a glass of Riesling with friends and family.

    Our People

    Our core purpose is to enrich our world every day by championing sociability and helping people to live well. It’s the value we deliver to the communities around us and is central to our business strategy.

    Exceptional drops, trusted brands, vibrant venues, innovative new products; we constantly challenge ourselves to do more, to go further, to get out in front of the pack.

    At the centre of this is our people. Dedicated men and women with a shared purpose, all pulling in the same direction, thinking big and never settling. Who are doing things right for the long term and putting customers at the heart of everything we do.

    It takes courage to make things happen, and our people are empowered to push boldly forward and do things differently, always in search of that something special.

    And something special is what we’ve fostered at Lion. We have an unrelenting commitment to our culture, which means that the way we achieve success is just as important as the accomplishment itself.
