Welcome to

Māori Point Wines

We are winegrowers, but also scientists who study the land, weather, plants, animals, and microbes that shape our wines.
While our understanding is based on science, our practices honour nature and tradition:

We offer a range of wines from innovative Gold Digger sparkling to elegant Pinot Noir, hand crafted to express unique facets of the stunning Central Otago region of New Zealand.
