Vineyard Sites

Nestled near the picturesque town of Renwick, Marlborough, our "Home Block" vineyard stands as a testament to three decades of winemaking excellence. Planted with passion and foresight over 30 years ago, this vineyard has become the heart and soul of our wine production, yielding grapes of unparalleled quality and character.

Vinification

Harvested, crushed and then fermented in small batches in oak cuves to add complexity. The ferments are hand plunged, skin contacted post fermentation, gently pressed and then aged in a 20/80 blend of new/old French oak barriques for 10 months prior to blending and bottling in late summer.
