Schubert was founded by German Kai Schubert and partner Marion Deimling in the Wairarapa region just northeast of Wellington. Both are graduates of an enological university in Germany. In 1998, a small established vineyard was acquired in Martinborough and additional high density planting was started in 1999 with now 36 acres under vines. A small tasting room is located on the property.
