Waitaria Bay Estate in the Marlborough Sounds is one of the most isolated places in New Zealand. And it is here that our herd of red deer is raised side by side with our vines, in the secluded, pristine haven we call home.
A boutique vineyard by the sea produces traditional hand crafted wines that are grown organically. We hand prune, shoot thin, leaf pluck and hand pick in the pursuit of perfection. Only the best of our grapes make it to the wine press as we strive to create the best possible wine from each of our varietals.
Waitaria Bay Estate, formerly Bayview Wines, was re-branded as RED DEER which reflects the varied enterprises at this incredibly interesting vineyard. Red Deer graze this sheltered, green valley alongside the slopes covered in vines.
