1998 was when the first vineyard was planted on Waiheke Island and 2002 their very first vintage of Chardonnay was produced. With the vision to hand-craft outstanding wines from the highest quality fruit, grown in small lot vineyards, they were off to a great start. And in all honesty, they haven’t looked back since. They gradually added more varietals to their portfolio; and in 2007, opened the doors to their stunning venue on Waiheke Island including the winery, cellar door, private event rooms and an award-winning dining room.
What’s more: an impressive private art collection from acclaimed New Zealand artists is on permanent display throughout the building of the winery!
