The Vineyards 

 

Maison Noire

Grown are Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Chenin Blanc. All planted with the help from Friends and Family

On the Waimarama road, 3km from the ocean (as the crow flies). Long hot dry summers with an afternoon sea breeze and cool winters, reasonable rainfall with the odd frost.

Soils are rich and black with a clay base, slopping gently towards the coast.

Contributing Vineyards

Due to the small size of our vineyard, we also source our grapes from various growers in Hawkes Bay. This region has an amazing number of micro-climates and terroirs, each of them giving unique characters to the different grape varieties that are grown here.

 

Over the last few years, and for the years to come, we have been privileged to work with passionate growers in the following sub-regions:

-    Maraekakaho Hills, West of the Bridge Pa Triangle

-    Paki Paki Hills, South of the Heretaunga Plains

-    Ancient river bed area with stoney soils, north east of Hastings

-    Coastal vineyards around Te Awanga

-    Alluvial vineyard alongside the Tuki Tuki River, West of Haumoana
