Sangiovese & Dolcetto Wines

Heron's Flight is one of only a few vineyards in New Zealand to specialise in the Italian varieties Sangiovese and Dolcetto. Our very limited release wines are well-regarded, and can be found on the wine-lists of many top restaurants and in specialist stores.

You can purchase wine directly from us through this website, or from our cellar door at
49 Sharp Rd, Matakana.

About us

The Land

Matakana is known for it's sloping hills, which drain the clay soil. We have a warm, dry micro-climate well suited to growing these Italian grapes. 

The People

David and Mary planted this vineyard with Chardonnay in 1987. Later we shifted to focus entirely on the Sangiovese and Dolcetto varieties. 

SUSTAINABILITY

We embody sustainable practises on our vineyard, including water conservation, and are moving towards full organic production.
