Off the coast of New Zealand’s North Island, a short ferry ride from Auckland City, you will find Waiheke Island – our very own Island of Wine. At just 92km2, this sweet paradise in the Hauraki Gulf is home to immaculate beaches, great food, and world class vineyards.
With love in every drop, all of Waiheke’s producers proud themselves on their sustainability practices; a must have on plots of their size & slope. Geologically, each plot of this land is unique, rewarding enthusiasts with unparalleled varietal expression in every sip. Holding true to its own in comparison with other premium regions, this island enjoys a drier and warmer climate than Auckland, with a longer and milder growing season than other regions.
Exclusively handpicked & sorted, this region is red wine dominant with 57% of all wine produced being red – mostly Merlot and Syrah. Despite, there has been a recent increase in white varieties with the most popular being Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Pinot Gris.
