Kumeu River’s Melba Brajkovich Made a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit

“I have been privileged to meet Melba Brajkovich on several occasions, usually after tasting through the Kumeu River range with her winemaker son Michael at the family’s beautiful property just north of Auckland. On each occasion it was her energy, vision and direct approach that always made a mark on me, attributes which clearly serve her well in the achievements she has made, and continues to make, for both Kumeu River and the New Zealand wine industry as a whole.

“So, I was delighted, though not at all surprised, to hear the news that Melba has been made a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit in the 2014 Queen’s Birthday Honours for services to the wine industry and the community. Congratulations to Melba and the Brajkovich family.”
