Stonyridge is dedicated to producing the finest Cabernet blends in the world (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot), combining traditional winemaking with meticulous organic viticulture. Waiheke Island, in the Hauraki Gulf of Auckland, is famous for producing great red wines because of its low summer rainfall and consistently high temperatures. The vineyard is located in a gently north-facing valley and is sheltered from the cold southwesterly winds by Stonyridge, a long ridge running from one coast to the other. The first Bordeaux vines and olive trees were planted in 1982 by Stephen White, with the help of close friends and family. Two years after returning to Bordeaux for a final training period in 1984 and completed the vintage at Chateau d'Angludet, Cantenac-Margaux under the tutelage of Peter Sichel later, Stephen made the great 1987 Larose that rocketed Stonyridge to national fame.
