Tiritiri Estate is probably New Zealand's smallest vineyard certified organic vineyard at just 500 vines. We hand-harvest and gently whole bunch press our grapes. The wine is fermented in French oak barriques and held on the lees for 10 months before being bottled. We use screw caps to ensure the integrity of every bottle of our wine.
We will not harvest our grapes if we feel they will not produce a top flight wine and for this reason we don't get a vintage every year. This makes our wines quite hard to find and demand often exceeds supply.
Our wines have won many gold and silver medals both here in New Zealand and overseas (San Francisco Wine Competition and London International Wine Challenge)
We are happy to send our wine anywhere in the world.
