We pride ourselves on creating limited release wines for the discerning wine drinker. Our point of difference comes from pushing the boundaries and growing grapes in unique and inspiring vineyard sites across the various sub-regions of Marlborough. Hidden jewels, remote, back breaking vineyards writing the next chapter in Marlborough’s wine story
As New Zealand and the Marlborough region has deservedly grown in reputation for producing world class wine with its characteristic clean, fresh appeal, Summerhouse has developed its own reputation for outstanding quality; gained international acclaim for its artisan wines with purity of fruit flavour.
Summerhouse vineyard lies on glacial soils and is nestled in Marlboroughs Wairau and Waihopai Valleys at the top of New Zealands South Island. The vineyard has no underlying water table, enabling control over the vines vigour. A gentle north facing slope and the shelter of the Kaikoura and Richmond Ranges provides a long slow ripening season that enables the fruit to develop intense flavours.
Blessed with the ideal mix of clay, stones, alluvial and glacial silts, the soil at Summerhouse is warm, free draining and has low fertility – perfect for producing top quality grapes and infusing a wonderful minerality into Summerhouse wine.
Our current range includes; Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Verdelho and a Blanc de Blancs Methode Traditionelle.
