Award-winning Family-Owned Winery

The owners at Matahiwi Estate pride themselves on being an award-winning family-owned winery.

They have adopted an extensive hands-on approach to their wine-making in line with those used by the finest international wine producers whilst utilizing the latest developments in techniques and technology. Romeo Bragato, an Italian viticulturist & oenologist, was contracted by New Zealand’s Department of Agriculture in 1895 to advise on planting & pruning vines in New Zealand, from which he reported the ideal growing conditions that the Wairarapa & other regions in New Zealand offered potential grape growers. And in the 1880s, a French wife of an early settler, William Beetham, was so inspired by the region when she left her Burgundian homeland to live in New Zealand, that she produced the region’s first Pinot Noir vintage in 1897.

Practicing the Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand (SWNZ)

Matahiwi Estate produces its wine according to the criteria of Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand (SWNZ) over 75ha. Grapes are predominantly grown in the Wairarapa with small volumes of Chardonnay and Syrah sourced from selected vineyard sites in Hawke’s Bay. The Wairarapa vineyards lie on the north-west outskirts of Masterton.

With complete respect for Mother Nature and its surrounding, the staff at Matahiwi winery cultivates a wide range of variety of grapes in their vineyards. Some of them include Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah. The most amazing grapes are harvested from the vineyards to send to the cellar where they are used for wine-making. The prime categories of wine produced in the winery include red, white, rose, and sparkling wines.
