Bridget Ennals and Steve Pellett travelled the world to find a place to put down their roots. They found that place at the top of New Zealands South Island, under the cool gaze of Mount Tapuae-O-Uenuku (the footprint of the rainbow) in Marlboroughs spectacular Awatere Valley.
The Awatere Valleys sunny days and cool nights ripen grapes slowly, allowing them to develop herbaceous flavours and gooseberry tastes distinctively different to the sauvignon produced elsewhere in Marlborough.
Sustainable viticulture has been the foundation of our vineyard practices since the outset. We joined Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand in its early days and became an accredited grower in 2005.
We are situated in the Awatere valley in the heart of Marlborough just 7kms from the coast, 45minutes from the aquatic playground of the Marlborough Sounds.
