waitiri, creek, central, otago, vineyard

Waitiri Creek Wines was established in 1993 by Alistair Ward, Paula Ramage and the Ward family. Paula grew up in Alexandra and the Ward family farmed for many years on Malaghan’s Road, near Arrowtown. Central Otago is our heartland – no matter where we have lived in the world, it has always called us home and the opportunity to develop our own vineyard here was too good to ignore.

With equal amounts of enthusiasm and naivety, the Shanagolden Block was purchased in Gibbston and planted with Chardonnay in 1994.
