Experience our world Located at the top of the South Island of New Zealand in the sub-region of Brightwater, Nelson, our vineyards really are in the centre of the land synonymous with the Middle-earth created by J.R.R. Tolkien. We have a producing area that totals more than 50 hectares across various blocks and lies in the confluence of two rivers, bordered by a scenic reserve on one side. An ideal location for premium grape growing with ancient alluvial soils that are stony and free draining with layered river silts. Expert vineyard management is aided with modern systems like computer controlled drip fed water supply if required along with natural practices of grazing sheep for grass and weed control makes us perfectly set up to provide premium quality, clean fruit to the winery. High sunshine hours and the cool, clear skies of autumn provide a slow ripening period that helps to retain the vibrant varietal flavours that make our wines so distinctive.
