Wines from Waimea Estate
Waimea Estate is a family business and one of the leading producers in Nelson. It is renowned for its aromatic wines. The winery has won over 100 Gold Medals and almost two dozen trophies in national and international competitions for their wines and offers an excellent price-value relationship. It has 2 brands: Waimea and Spinyback and grows its grapes with sustainable winegrowing practices. It donates to the Tuatara Trust for each bottle of Spinyback sold.
Waimea works on the principle that to make great wine you need great grapes and so the wine quality and appeal begins in the vineyards. Year after year they harvest a quality crop - the direct result of paying careful attention to the integration of grape variety, rootstock and soil. Vine density, pruning, canopy management, soil cultivation and vine age all combine to influence the final quality of the Waimea wine.
