Award winning premium single vineyard, single varietal wines
Hand-made all the way
When you arrive on Waiheke Island by passenger ferry, take a casual 15 minute stroll from the wharf to the valley bush walk which starts behind the carpark and comes out at Church Bay. Follow the signs to the winery enjoying the stunning views, drop in, ring the bell and have a chat with the winemaker while he pours you a taste of his Pinot Grigio Blush wine, Gold-medal Syrah, Syrah Rose, Cabernet Franc, single-vineyard Sauvignon Blanc or trophy-winning Montepulciano. Taste the difference!
Our winery cellar door is open for visitors and tastings 11am to 4pm daily throughout the year.
