Hyperion in Greek mythology was the Sun God, hence the effect of sun and light on the vineyard.

Hyperion Wines is a genuine boutique vineyard and winery producing traditionally crafted wines exclusively from the Matakana winegrowing region, just an hour north of Auckland New Zealand.

The tiny home vineyard is planted in classic grape varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Pinot Noir with all fruit processed on site in a character converted cowshed. Wines include Bordeaux straight varietals and blends, Malbec, Pinot Noir, Rose, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay. Port and Grappa are also made on the premises, the latter in conjunction with Castle Matakana.
