Backing the Marlborough community

BDO Marlborough is locally owned and operated – we have strong community ties throughout the region and show our support through sponsorships and involvement across wine, sports, various not-for-profits and cultural organisations.  

We have strong ties to Marlborough's wine industry, and provide specialist business services to grape growers and wineries across Marlborough. We are proud sponsors of Wine Marlborough, which represents 559 grape growers and 147 wine companies across the region. It was established over 40 years ago and is 100% owned by the Marlborough Winegrowers Association. Their aim is to educate, grow, protect and celebrate the Marlborough wine industry.  

BDO Marlborough (previously Leslie & O’Donnell) have been regional sponsors of the Young Winemaker of the Year and Young Viticulturist of the Year for many years. The focus of these awards are close to our hearts, we know how important it is to develop the capability of our future experts in the industry – just like we know the importance of backing wine businesses to succeed through the provision of tailored business advisory and accounting services.
