Matahiwi Estate lies in the heart of New Zealand’s Wairarapa region, a place internationally renowned for the quality of its wine.
A 1,300 tonne winery and 70 hectare (175 acre) vineyard, Matahiwi Estate is situated just five minutes north of Masterton, the Wairarapa region’s capital.
The bulk of the vineyard is planted in the grapes that have created New Zealand’s most successfully exported wines: sauvignon blanc and pinot noir. These plantings are supported by smaller numbers of pinot gris and chardonnay vines.
Matahiwi Estate can be easily tuned to cater to a purchaser’s individual needs.
Due to its efficiency, its well-performing vineyard and economies of scale, it has the ability to operate in the more lucrative, lower-cost price points. If desired, production processes could be changed to produce more premium or ultra-premium wine.
The quality of this offering is clearly demonstrated by the Estate’s long track record of local and international awards success. This is combined with production processes and a team who are focussed on delivering quality results in the most efficient and cost effective way.
A beautiful setting with neatly mown landscaped outdoor areas, complete with water-race and irrigation pond. Impressive, architecturally designed winery buildings are well located to complete this picturesque scene. The vineyard land is flat and easy to manage, sitting on an ancient river valley creating the free-draining, alluvial soils, highly sought after by viticulturists the world over.
Matahiwi Estate has it all – a well performing vineyard with a flexible winery capable of producing excellent premium wines. In addition there is the ability to utilise economies of scale and cost efficient practises to produce entry-level wines that over-deliver on quality. With additional revenue streams created through large scale, contract winemaking arrangements.
