At Mahana Estates in Nelson, Winemaker Michael Glover uses minimal-input winemaking combined with traditional and alternative techniques to produce dynamic, uncompromising wines from dry-grown and organically managed vineyards.
The model of winemaking at Mahana is fundamentally centred on the philosophy of terroir, placing the highest value on site, season and soul of a place.
A believer in terroir understands we are not of the Old World but the New so our wines should reflect that. We must find our own path and not make wines how they should be, but be brave enough to make wines how they could be.
