OUR PLACE

A UNIQUE PLACE

Marlborough is a little slice of paradise at the top of the South Island of New Zealand. It’s the region that put the grassy New Zealand-style Sauvignon Blanc on the world map. But we have another name for it, home.

The Personal Touch

Big fans of all things local, we like to keep things small. Purchasing grapes from a few hard-working, local growing families we know and trust makes perfect sense. Why? Because they care about what they produce. It is their livelihood; their bread and butter, and we’re 100% behind them.

SMALL BUT FEISTY

Extensive experience with Marlborough’s various vineyard flavour characters, a deep  attachment to her home region along with strong personal connections to the grape growing families of Marlborough allow Jules to source hidden pockets of outstanding fruit.

THE BEAUTY IS IN THE SIMPLICITY. WE TRY TO CREATE WINES THAT ARE NOT TOO COMPLICATED BUT REFLECTIVE OF THE SOILS AND THE FARMERS THAT GROW THEM, TRUE TO THEIR VARIETY WITH LOCAL CHARACTERISTICS.

The final selection

Come harvest time, you’ll find Jules relentlessly walking the rows of each select vineyard, tasting berries for days on end, searching for the precise moment when sugar, acidity and flavour meet in perfect balance. Leading up to the crucial decision of when to pick to ensure optimum results, she makes the call purely by taste, not relying on results from the laboratory.

It all comes down to one simple truth. It is the best grapes that make the best wines.

One harvest, one batch

After harvest, the magic happens. Jules escorts the grapes to the winery for pressing, fermentation, maturation, and the best part – blending and tasting!

We’re a picky lot. We only make one batch of each wine variety, every harvest. So, enjoy it while you can. Once it’s gone, it’s well and truly gone.
