Our Philosophy

Kirkpatrick Estate Winery’s unique vineyard site offers exciting potential for fruit quality and diversity. At Kirkpatrick Estate Winery we aim to harness and maximize this potential to produce intricate and complex wines that truly reflect the land and our focus on quality.

Environmental Health and respect for the beneficial flora and fauna are philosophies that we hold central to the management of our vineyard. We believe these are vital to the practice of responsible viticulture and winemaking, and as such we are accredited through Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand for our Vineyard and Winery.

The variation throughout the elevated, terraced and level areas of the vineyard is reflected in the complexity of the aromas and characters of the fruit. This variation gives us the ability to carefully hone the best final blends for each of our wine styles.

Ultimately we strive to provide enchanting memories from the vine to taste buds by offering an entire wine, cellar door and vineyard experience.
