Haythornthwaite Wines is family owned, focusing on quality rather than quantity. Located in Martinborough , our vineyards are situated on an ancient alluvial river terrace made up of deep, free-draining gravel overlaid with a gravelly silt loam. First plantings in 1992, first vintage in 1997. Registered under Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand, the boutique vineyard produces ripe elegant Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer. Work is undertaken by hand with minimal mechanisation; turning top quality fruit into award winning wines. Our wines have received medals in New Zealand, London and Hong Kong.
