Welcome to On Giants' Shoulder's

e-cellar door

We stand on the shoulders of giants, having grown from the knowledge and labour of others that came before us. The new team at On Giants’ Shoulders will continue nurturing the land and crafting fine wines that express Martinborough’s iconic terroir.

Together, we–owners past and present–believe this change brings fresh poetic truth to Isaac Newton’s famous quote.

With vines established in 1988, the four hectare vineyard is densely planted in Pinot noir, Chardonnay and Pinot gris. The vineyard is situated on rich Martinborough soils with clay loam running over alluvial gravels set down by the Huangarua and Raumahanga rivers. A combination of these soils and sound cultural practices have rewarded us with floral, aromatic and elegant examples of each wine style.

We work hard to maintain soil health and structure by increasing organic matter and biodiversity through inter-row planting of cover crops.

As the new custodians, we intend to build on the reputation this vineyard has acquired and help it evolve further. Learn more about our team here
