About us

Kahurangi Estate is a family owned boutique vineyard dedicated to producing hand-made premium quality wines in a truly sustainable manner. Our focus is on aromatic grape varieties that respond to the Nelson region's cool climate conditions.

The vineyard was planted in 1973 and has the oldest commercial Riesling vines in the South Island. We purchased the existing vineyard in 1998, developing the Kahurangi brand and becoming one of the fastest growing wineries in New Zealand.

Nelson benefits from a sunny maritime climate and as a region claims the highest sunshine hours in New Zealand. Our climate allows us to specialise in aromatic grape varietes that respond to "cool climate" conditions. Our grape varieties consist of Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Gerwurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Montepulciano.
