We are a boutique vineyard and winery located on beautiful Waiheke Island, overlooking Putiki Bay. It’s here we create handcrafted wines, full of character, that draw on the knowledge of Kim and Jeanette Goldwater who founded winegrowing on Waiheke Island in 1978 and produced many iconic wines from this vineyard.
Our business honours the legacy of our philanthropic founder,s with a culture built around integrity, respect and sustainable environmental business practises. Nestled among 30 acres of native bush and rolling vineyards, the micro-climate provides an ideal terroir for winegrowing.
Our commercial team, led by Heinrich Storm, continue their philosophy of nurturing and continually improving our established vineyards. Our Waiheke vineyard produces Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Chardonnay and Viognier varieties, many of which are multi award-winning.
The Estate is also home to the University of Auckland’s Wine Science Centre, which aims to continue the innovative spirit of the Goldwater family. The programme provides a unique learning experience for the students to be immersed in a fully operational winery.
