New Zealand summers have plenty of heat and sunshine, but it’s at nightfall when the magic really happens. When the sun dips below the horizon and takes its warm kiss away from our islands, the temperatures quickly drop and we are reminded of our secluded geographical location in the Southern Ocean. It is this unique geographic positioning that gives us one of the longest grape growing seasons on earth is so special to the creation of our wines. Cold night time temperatures help to capture the elegant acidity and the unmistakable zesty flavours and fragrances that are the hallmark of our wines.

Our vineyards are living organisms that we share with our workers, animals, insects and neighbours. We strive to keep our impact low and our Whanau (Family) safe. Our focus is on ensuring that we put more back into the land than what we take. We are farmers at heart, nurturing the elements that make our grapes unique so we can bring you Tiki Wines which are our Taonga (Treasure) of New Zealand.

Some of the ways in which we care for our land sustainably is by using merino lambs to graze our vineyards in the winter, using liquid seaweed’s, molasses and beneficial bacteria and fungi for ground drenching to enrich the soils. We have a strong focus on re-using and maximise recycling opportunities wherever possible. As a company we strive to ensure all of our actions have the long term interest of our land at heart.
