Te Motu Vineyard from Waiheke Island

We are looking forward to welcoming Te Motu to our April evening.  For those who don't know their story here's a few notes from their website - do come along and join us to find out more.

"The Te Motu Vineyard story began in 1988 when the Dunleavy family procured 30 acres of prime “vineyard valley” and nourished it into a haven of premier wine.

As one of the pioneers of the Waiheke wine movement, the family’s vision was clear from the outset: To master wines of the ‘Bordeaux’ style, comprised predominantly from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

In 1989 the first vines were planted. The first vintage of Te Motu was produced in 1993.

The vineyard's name 'Te Motu' comes from the original Maori name for Waiheke, Te MotuAraiRoa ('island of long shelter')."

Te Motu's wines include Bordeaux blends and Syrah grown on Waiheke, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Reisling from Marlborough along with the mysterious Tipua.  Come along to find out more....
