Where the River Meets the Sea

Our home is in the famed Marlborough wine growing region on New Zealand’s South Island. Established in 1994 in the Awatere Valley, our name comes from nearby Clifford Bay, the point where the Awatere River meets the cool waters of the Pacific Ocean.

Since our first vintage of Sauvignon Blanc in 1997, we have worked diligently to produce wines that are finely balanced, refreshing & pure. We harvest fruit from estate and grower vineyards in Marlborough’s premier growing regions, and all our vineyards and our Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand (SWNZ) certified. Our winemaking focuses on preserving both varietal character and regional expression, which you can taste in the inherent freshness, balance and structure of our wine.

We invite you to experience a Sauvignon Blanc that will transport you to the bright beauty of our sunny home in Marlborough.
