Mahi Wines
For all of the Mahi single-vineyard wines the fruit is hand-picked and sorted prior to being 'whole-cluster' pressed at the winery. Fermentation is done with the indigenous yeasts that arrive on the grapes, and if barrels are used these will be French, as they give a more savoury character to the wines.
Claylaur Family Estate Wines
Since 1984 the Smith Family has been growing quality grapes on their Claylaur Family Estate vineyards. The fruit for this wine is from two diverse quality sites, the glacial out wash gravels of the southern Omaka Valley and the stony silt soil of the central Wairau Valley.
Terrace Heights Estate
The Terrace Heights Estate vineyard is situated on the lower terrace of the Wairau plains just west of Renwick in Marlborough, New Zealand. The vineyard was first planted in 1993/94.

Wild South Wines
Wild South is an adventure, and it’s this spirit that led us to the Waihopai Valley, beside the Omaka River, to a wild piece of land strewn with rocks from end to end: Hell’s Gate. But hidden under that prickly name and all those rocks was the perfect wine-growing land. Rock by rock, we hand-cleared it and set about establishing Wild South wines, and this Marlborough vineyard was to be at the heart of it all.
Maven Wines
Our Cravens Road vineyard occupies a picturesque site backed by the Richmond Range, with the Wairau River just 200m from the vines. Cravens Creek winds through the vineyard.
