Wines From Martinborough New Zealand

Thinking People, Thoughtful Wines

Gladstone Geographic Indication (GI)

Natural river terraces rise steeply from the stony riverbed and create a challenging and satisfying environment for grape-growing and winemaking.  The terraces revel in long hours of bright sunshine, coupled with moderate rainfall and vigorous winds for healthy vines.

Winemakers test the sub-region's potential with a variety of varietals as they explore its boundaries to the utmost.   Vineyards are all family-owned and run, around Dakin's Road and Gladstone Road.

In March, they celebrate the growing year with a unique intimate Harvest Festival, held on a single riverside site. The festival is as relaxed and informal as its community, beneath 1000-year old native trees.  A new wine-making tradition is well under way.  Please click here for more information.
