It’s always interesting asking local business operators how they ended up…
“Our vineyards enjoy the most sunshine hours of all NZ grape growing regions. This sunshine and warmth is moderated by the afternoon sea breeze which rolls in cooling the vineyards. This gradual ripening over a long growing season from September till harvest between late March till the end of April slowly builds intense flavour in our grapes.
Combining this fabulous Nelson climate with ancient free-draining stony clay loam soils is perfect for hand crafting vibrant fruit driven white wines and well-structured elegant red wines of exceptional quality.
By managing our vineyard organically we can truly express the natural terroir of the vineyard and environment in our wine”. – Te Mania Wines
