VITICULTURE

Our Viticulture teams manage more than 3,400 hectares (8,400 acres) of world-class vineyards in Marlborough, Hawke’s Bay and the Barossa Valley to deliver exceptional quality fruit for the making of Super Premium wine.

We are recognised leaders in advanced viticulture. We operate with a scientifically and sustainably-led approach, managing vineyard yields to support fruit quality and supply for the aspirations of the company.

We manage all aspects of vineyard operations, from site evaluation and profiling, through to vineyard establishment, annual vineyard management plans and precision viticulture operations. We work hard to deliver both quality and yield, having to be adaptable with the unique demands of each season.

WINEMAKING

Our Winemaking teams concentrate their energies on making a focused range of outstanding Super Premium wines from world renowned wine regions. We capture and retain the vibrant fruit flavours and individual character of the grape and region. Our wine styles are amongst the most sought-after in the world today.

Our winemaking operations are based in Marlborough, Hawke’s Bay, Auckland and Australia’s Barossa Valley. We work in a high performance team environment supported by substantial investments in state-of-the-art winemaking facilities and world-class viticulture.

With our customers around the world at the heart of what we do, we work closely with viticulture to understand the potential of each vineyard block, whilst remaining at the forefront of winemaking research and process development.
