Our state of the art, purpose-built winery is designed to blend sympathetically with our rolling landscape. The northern side of the sloping winery roof is home to one of the largest solar panel arrays in New Zealand, whilst inside, cutting-edge SMART green technology ensures that every stage of the winemaking process is meticulously monitored and carefully controlled, guided throughout by the New Zealand Green Building Code.
Our winery systems work together to ensure we operate at the highest level of efficiency and sustaibability.
We installed one of New Zealand's largest solar panel arrays on the roof of our winery to help lessen our dependency on the grid. Wind turbines and the burning of vine prunings also help generate renewable energy.
Innovation meets Sustainability:
We operate our winery as sustainably as possible and have switched to 100% low energy LED lighting which is brighter and causes less strain on the eyes, supporting the well-being of our team.
The large winemaking area contains tanks of varying sizes. From the laboratory on the mezzanine floor above, our winemakers are able to control the temperature of each tank separately and precisely. As well as aiding our sustainability drive, this lets us monitor each batch of wine with absolute precision. Such exact control helps us achieve consistent quality across all of our wines, whether we’re working with small batches of hand-picked fruit or larger volumes.
Electric Vehicle Charging Station:
Powered by the solar panel installation on our winery roof, we have a complimentary electric vehicle charging station for use by our staff and any visitors to the winery.
