From a small estate come big wines.

From our 8 hectare estate in New Zealand’s Waipara Valley, we produce some of NZ’s finest Syrah and Pinot Gris, as well as the perennial customer favourite, our Rosé. Our commitment to meticulous viticulture and traditional winemaking techniques shines through in every glass, so that you can be assured that each bottle of Georges Road Wines you experience is sure to delight.

Welcome to Georges Road Wines.

This month in the Cellar…

All quiet inside the winery. Our Rosé 2018 has been bottled and released. Next on the list will be the Riesling and Pinot Gris sometime towards the end of the year. Both wines are still in tank & barrel on full gross lees as part of efforts to increase each wines texture and weight. Our two reds, Pinot Noir and Syrah are quietly maturing in barrel, no much happening apart from weekly topping as they await the warmer spring temperatures which will kickstart the natural malolactic fermentation.

Out in the Vineyard…

Pruning, one of the bigger tasks in the vineyard each season is now complete, just in time as the weather has begun to get warmer, spring is here and the vines will soon awake from winter dormancy as the soil temperature rises. Budburst in the vineyard is usually around the 10th September most years although the districts fruit trees are already beginning to blossom so that might be a sign of an early start. Its been a relatively mild winter, warmer and drier than usual.
