We have a range of incredible wines, grown organically, from NZ’s premier grape growing regions Marlborough and Central Otago.
Our team has a wealth of expertise and experience, from growing grapes, making wine and telling our vinous stories.
We have been growing grapes since the early 1990’s and embarked on our organic regime in the mid-late 2000’s, converting our Corners and Trig Hill Vineyards and setting up the Orchard Vineyard from scratch to organic certification.
Incorporating biodynamics into our organic regime we are learning how our vineyards live and respond to this way of living. To us it just makes sense.
Respect and care for the soil and plants is a philosophy that could be applied to all life.
Blended from grapes grown in various blocks within our company owned vineyards, our 3rd Rock wines are representative of regional and sub-regional varietal characters, specifically Marlborough’s Rapaura and Central Otago’s Bendigo sub-regions.
Made in small volumes and sourced from unique parcels within our company owned vineyards. These wines represent the pinnacle of varietal and site-specific expression and are only released from the best vintages.
Made in the ‘traditional method’ and made simply because we can! These wines are a celebration of our vineyard sites and the wonderful winegrowing climate that is New Zealand’s South Island.
