Established in 1896, Te Mata Estate remains family owned, producing internationally recognized wines exclusively from its Hawkes Bay vineyards.
Under the direction of John Buck, Te Mata Estate has, over thirty years, produced a stunning array of red and white wines including famous labels such as Coleraine, Awatea, Bullnose, Elston, Cape Crest and Zara.
In 2012 Te Mata Estate launched Estate Vineyards, a collection of five varietally designated wines; merlot/cabernet, syrah, gamay noir, chardonnay and sauvignon blanc.
New Zealand’s oldest winery buildings, in continuous use since 1896. New Zealand’s first vineyards to be protected by law. All wines grown in Hawke’s Bay, handpicked and made entirely onsite – including Coleraine. Five wines listed as FIVE STAR & SUPER CLASSIC in ‘Michael Cooper’s Buyer’s Guide to New Zealand Wine.’
