Gillman Vineyard

As great wine can only be made from great grapes, we searched for two years to find the perfect place for our vineyard.
We found our ideal site in Matakana – a steep north-facing slope of free-draining, iron-rich volcanic clay, sheltered by the Rodney Ranges to the west and warmed by the nearby Pacific Ocean to the east. Two-thirds of the vineyard is planted in Cabernet Franc, which thrives in Matakana, producing a wine of great character.
The vineyard currently covers 1.5 acres – “small enough that I know every vine,” winemaker Toby Gillman says. “Practically everything is done by hand."
