Te Kairanga

MARTINBOROUGH IS LOCATED AT THE FOOT OF NEW ZEALAND'S NORTH ISLAND. OUR SMALL GROWING REGION ACCOUNTS FOR ONLY 2% OF THE COUNTRY’S WINE PRODUCTION.

WE SIT AT AN IDEAL CONFLUENCE OF GEOLOGY AND GEOGRAPHY. THE PERFECT CLIMATE AND TERRAIN TO PRODUCE EXCEPTIONAL PINOT NOIR


The stone-filled river terraces are free-draining while the top-soils vary from slope to slope. The Tararua Range protects us from harsh elements and we enjoy long dry days and cool nights.

The vines grow less vigorously in the cool, breezy conditions, so yields are lower and the flavours more intense. Our long dry autumns provide the right balance of warm days (creating ripeness) and cool nights (providing elegance) for producing top quality Pinot Noir and other early-ripening varieties.
