Our story

family

Our story starts more than 50 years ago here at the same property our family still lives at now. Four generations have and continue to work on our land. From beginnings as a Dairy farm producing milk for town supply, to where we are now. A producer of premium 100% sustainable wines.

Life as vineyards here started in 1996, where we began this passion growing for one of New Zealand’s most successful wine brands – Kim Crawford. From there our plantings grew and we quickly became recognized as a grower for other elite NZ wineries around the country.

2012 marked an exciting time for us as we launched  MIDDLE-EARTH Vineyards. We now have the enjoyment of the providing the complete vine to bottle offering for wine lovers here and abroad.
