Gisborne Wine

Top chardonnay & pinot gris


Gisborne has sunny, hot summers - combine that with the fertile loam soils of the Waipaoa River valley and you’ve got excellent conditions for producing chardonnay and pinto gris.

Gisborne vineyards are frequently the first to be harvested in the country.

  • Matawhero - 189 Riverpoint Rd - explore the underground cellar and enjoy gourmet platters.

  • Millton Vineyards & Winery - 119 Papatu Rd, Manutuke - family owned and operated.

  • Bushmere Estate - 166 Main Road SH2 - boutique winery with single vineyard wines.
