About Us

We are a boutique vineyard just five minutes from the Village of Havelock North in Hawke's Bay Wine Country. Our focus is on premium Bordeaux styled red varieties such as Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Our award-winning whites include Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. All our wines are Estate Grown and the fruit is selectively picked. With just over 25 acres many of our wines are available only through the cellar door and this website.


Our elevated north facing site on the lower slopes of the Te Mata hills is not only an excellent location for grape growing it also provides us with stunning views, a warm sheltered micro-climate and a perfect situation for the visitor to spend an hour or two, a night or two or even a week or two.

You can taste our wines, have lunch at the Bistro, a Summer Saturday morning at the Grower's Market and Kitchen store, an evening at a concert in the amphitheatre or all of the above by staying in one of our sixteen properties.

Because we are not large, we are very keen on building a relationship with the person who consumes our wine. This is why we encourage people into Hawke's Bay and into our vineyard. While a virtual visit is OK, nothing can replace the experience of actually being here.

Our Cellar Door is open seven days and we welcome a call or a visit sometime soon.
