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

Our mid-row winter cover crops are loving the suns Our mid-row winter cover crops are loving the sunshine this week.

Booming away after recent rains and now folllowed up with these sunny days this week. 

We have used cover crops as a management technique here from the very early days of our ownership of Te Whare Ra 

These are used to increase our organic matter and improve soil structure and we rotate regularly
