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.
David and Mary planted this vineyard with Chardonnay in 1987. Later we shifted to focus entirely on the Sangiovese and Dolcetto varieties.
We embody sustainable practises on our vineyard, including water conservation, and are moving towards full organic production.
