Kia ora, welcome to Tohu

Twenty years ago, we established the world’s first Māori-owned wine business.

We are part of a family business and business of families.

Our tūpuna were kaitiaki of whenua and moana  - farmers, fishermen, planters and providores. They were astute, creative and entrepreneurial. It is our responsibility to uphold their legacy, and enhance the resources they passed down to us, now and for future generations.

Today we create internationally recognised award-winning wines while remaining true to our deeply held values, which include rangatiratanga, kaitiakitanga and manaakitanga – excellence, guardianship and kindness.

Every Tohu bottle carries our distinctive logo, derived from a koru pattern. For Māori, the koru symbolises growth, life and the natural world, and our logo celebrates this iconic spiral. It represents the growth of our company and the journey of our people from the past to today. This koru signifies our long-term intergenerational goals and has become our tohu, our signature.

Welcome to our journey. Mauri ora!



Our Story

Our Wines


“It's the wonderful generosity of the flavours in the wines, and the character in the wines. And when you put them with great food, it is just magical.”

— Yvonne Lorking Wine Writer, NZ Herald and Dish magazine & Chief tasting officer & Co-Founder of Winefriend


“An enticing perfumed bouquet of rosé with aromas and flavours of Christmas cherries and tart strawberry, a definitive leesy complexity adds weight and power.

— Cameron Douglas, Master sommelier
