Our vineyards are inspired by the natural beauty of the landscape and have been set up with the focus on quality, biodiversity and sustainability.
Being the only BioGro Certfied Organic vineyard in Matakana we are very aware of the inputs we use to grow our grapes and make our wine.
This kept simple and traditional to continue the theme of wine being influenced by the vineyards which produces wines that are natural and have very low total sulphur level.
Only strictly limited quantities of our organic wines have been produced and furnished with a unique Hundertwasser created wine label.
“EVERYTHING IS SO INFINITELY SIMPLE, SO BEAUTIFUL”
The Hundertwasser Label
“Architecture should elevate man, not humiliate, oppress and enslave him. Rich and powerful and tasteful people always had towers. But for a modern average person to have towers, even golden ones, that is new. A golden onion tower on your own house elevates the resident to the status of a king. The grey mass misery is over. The Golden Age has dawned.”
Designed as a wine label by Hundertwasser 30 years ago for a European Wine Charity Auction. It is through our strong association with the Hundertwasser Foundation that we have been allowed sole copyright to this unique label.
Only strictly limited quantities of our organic wines have been produced and furnished with this Hundertwasser created wine label.
