The soil is rich, while fine alluvial gravels sit close beneath the surface. It’s perfect for wine.
The bluffs take the edge off all winds but the rare Easterly. There are but a few frosts each winter. Often the weather is foul just a few score kilometres away, yet mild here. That’s te Pā.
In addition to our little oasis on the water's edge of the Wairau Valley, we also have vineyards in the highly sought-after Awatere Valley near Seddon. Typically cooler, drier and winder than its other Marlborough counterparts, the Awatere tends to be lower cropping which results in some dramatic, flavourful fruit.
The fruits of our Wairau and Awatere Valley vineyards work particularly well together, with the very different characteristics of each site working to complement and balance the other.
