Welcome to

Māori Point Wines

This land is a bend on the Mata-Au (Clutha River) where Māori prospectors panned for gold in the 1860s.
We are two families devoted to this land and the wines it creates. We are winegrowers, but also scientists who study the soil, weather, plants, animals, and microbes that shape our wines.
While our understanding is based on science, our practices honour nature and tradition:
Sustainable hand-based viticulture, low yields, wild yeast fermentations, minimal sulphites, and natural winemaking.

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.
