Whenua Range

Our Whenua single vineyard wines are a gift from the land, our tūrangawaewae, the place where we stand.

Each wine is an expression of the uniqueness of our standing place, and our enduring connection to the land. 

Te Tauihu, the northern end of New Zealand’s South Island, is where we stand tallest, arms outstretched from west to east.
Two distinct vineyards; our Whenua Matua vineyard sits among the sun-drenched slopes of upper Moutere, Nelson,
while our Whenua Awa vineyard is high on the remote terraces of the upper Awatere Valley, Marlborough. 

Defined by our lands, guided by our inherited values, and grounded by our connection.
Experience the beauty and complexity of our story, and how it is woven through time as a part of us and our legacy.
