Old world style with new world flair.
Through the pioneering efforts of our astute forebears who recognised the Burgundian qualities of the local climate and soils, we are proudly part of the Martinborough Terrace Appellation in the lower North Island of New Zealand.
Here we grow and produce fine wines from Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc. Occasionally, we locally source other varietals (such as Syrah) to turn our minds – and our hands – to.
Our vineyards comprise gnarly old vines that we refuse to irrigate, forcing their roots deeper into the ancient river gravels to pull up vital nutrients. The jewel in the crown is our St. Martin Vineyard on Huangarua Road with its majestic 20 year old Chardonnay vines and vineyard cottage.
