"Situated in the heart of Matakana, a hidden gem of a wine region, which lies between rolling green hills and beautiful sandy beaches less than an hour's drive north of Auckland. Rich in culture, the area attracts many visitors to enjoy its fine wines, local foods, busy markets, and art and craft galleries. Our philosophy has always been to capture the essence of New Zealand's finest grape varieties from the regions where they grow best, so as well as making wines from our own substantial Matakana vineyards, we seek out limited amounts of premium grapes from selected wine regions further afield to make the very best wines we can."
Our home vineyard for Chardonnay is sited on rolling, north-facing, well-drained clay slopes. The climate is warm, maritime and occasionally humid which, though sometimes challenging, produces stylish, full-bodied wine with great character.
