Welcome to Awaroa Winery's international e-cellar door
"Using sustainable and organic practices we aim for a ripe concentrated style of red wine."
We use meticulous vineyard management to ensure low yield while leaving the fruit out in the sun as long as possible to develop the best possible flavours for our wines.
Our vineyards are on gently sloping, west-facing hills in a valley system known as Awaawaroa Valley. The base of the valley contains the stream and the soil is a rich clay extremely suitable for the varieties grown.
The climate here on Waiheke Island is similar to Bordeaux with rainfall, heat and sunshine hours suited to this style of wines. Since we are a small organic vineyard, our time and effort is focused on viticultural practises that can enhance the quality and flavours of the wines.
"The Awaroa label is reserved for organically grown grapes grown on our vineyard.
All wines under the Awaroa label are made on our land in our winery"
