Ara in Maori means pathway – hence Aravin “pathway to wine”. It is also named after the Aravah desert which reflects the nature of the Alexandra hills.
We established our 2.6 hectare vineyard in 1999 with help from family and friends.
Our mission is to produce quality wine at an affordable price and we are proud to say that our wines are consistent medal winners. Our top accolade has been being named Champion Pinot Noir and Reserve Champion at the Bragato Wine Awards in 2009
