Quality wines worthy of fine food and great company

From day one I have passionately believed that quality fruit in our Gimblett Gravels vineyards in the Hawkes Bay would produce outstanding wine in our bottles. While in the winery technical management and winemaking processes are necessarily complex, our aim has always been simple: to create quality wines worthy of fine food and great company.

That will always be our aim and I make a personal promise to diligently and unrelentingly keep on delivering just that. Life is short, so enjoy our wines today, but if you can trust yourself to cellar a bottle or two, you’ll be richly rewarded.



International wine challenge

GOLD - The Nest Merlot 2013

The Nest Merlot is a serious mid-level offering. Great plantings in Gimblett Gravels produce a wine full of succulent black and red fruits, spice, firm ripe tannins and toasty character reflective of 18 months in French Oak.

The Squawking Magpie
