Awatere River Wine Company
Malborough, New Zealand
Awatere River, by Louis Vavasour is a collection of award winning, low yield, premium quality wines that reflect the distinctive terroir of the alluvial river flats on which they were grown.

Focusing on length, structure and complexity, Awatere River produces exceptional Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Awatere River is the culmination of 15 years immersion in winemaking and draws on over a century of Vavasour family tradition. It also reflects a little of the winemaker's own history and personality. Louis opted to trade, not on family name but on everything he loves most about living and working in the region.

"Our wines capture the essence of the Marlborough lifestyle. For me that's about fun days kicking back at the bach with friends and family - fishing, diving for scallops, or sailing the tranquil Sounds. Frequently enjoying quality wines created virtually in our own backyard." - Louis Vavasour, Winemaker and Founder

Deep in the south of New Zealand and surrounded by mountain ranges is Central Otago, New Zealand’s smallest, but fastest growing wine region, and home to some of the finest vineyards and Pinot Noirs in the country. Lowburn Ferry Vineyard, nestled on a sheltered terrace beneath the Pisa Ranges, is family owned and dedicated to producing high quality Pinot Noir wines.
The Martinborough Vineyard
Martinborough, New Zealand
Originally a small family-owned and -run initiative, with total shareholder involvement from planting and picking to pruning and winemaking, today Martinborough Vineyard has an average annual harvest of 300 tonnes and our wine is exported around the world. Despite our gradual growth all our vines are still low-cropped and lovingly hand-tended, as in the early days, with minimal intervention in the winery, in order to let the fruit speak for itself. Our winemaker, Paul Mason, follows in the illustrious winemaking footsteps of Larry McKenna (1986-1999) and Claire Mulholland (2000-2007). Paul leads a small team focused on sustainably producing small quantities of exclusive fine wine which reflect the intrinsic characters of their site. Our philosophy is to produce the finest Pinot Noir in the New World with the focus on "Handcrafted Excellence in Wine".
