Hand Picked & Hand Made

Te Whare Ra (TWR) is a small vineyard and winery located in the Marlborough sub-region of Renwick, owned by winemakers – Anna & Jason Flowerday. The 11 Ha vineyard which has predominantly loam over clay soils, is one of the oldest in Marlborough, originally planted in 1979. Yields are kept low, the vineyard is managed with a combination of organic and biodynamic practices and all the fruit is hand picked and hand-sorted.

Our Story

“Our philosophy is wholly centered on making seriously good wine. We like wines to express their place – to speak of a somewhere-ness rather than of a same-ness, we want you to be able to taste this in our wines.”

Winemakers ~ Anna & Jason Flowerday

Lots of chat about and attention to our aromatic w Lots of chat about and attention to our aromatic whites and Rosé lately, so today I am shining the light (literally) on our Chardonnay. 

Super excited to have made two @biogronz organic Chardonnays from 2020 which will be going to bottle at the end of the month.

One will be an SV5182 from our old Mendoza vines here which are now 40+ years old and the 2020 TWR is a blend of our home block and the fabulous folks from The Wrekin up the top of the Brancott.

Will be a while yet till either of these are released but just wanted to put them on your radar
