About the Winery
Te Awanga, with its sea views and breezes, coastal loams and salty air, is the main line for us. The vineyards, the people, the winemaking, the tinkering, the thinking, the planning and dreaming – these moving parts all eventually arrive at the one point – Te Awanga. It’s where it all comes together.
Our Sauvignon Blanc comes from vines planted in the late 1990’s at Mangatahi in Hawks Bay. The vineyard is situated on the ancient alluvial shingle terraces high above the Ngaruroro River. As one of the most elevated vineyards in Hawke’s Bay its North facing slopes enjoy long and hot summer days but chill off overnight making this the perfect place for Sauvignon Blanc.
