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

Absolute pearler of a day here in #onlymarlborough Absolute pearler of a day here in #onlymarlborough today - blue skies and plenty of sunshine. 

Team TWR have been flat out in the vineyard with shoot thinning the whole block and keeping up with all the wire lifting. JF is busy with mowing and another pass with the undervine weeder.

We are super chuffed to be hosting a workshop later this week with Kiwiseed and Professor Derrick Moot from Lincoln University about cover crops and more

Deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Mike Wee Deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Mike Weersing - co creator of Pyramid Valley. 

 He was one of the most generous, creative, courageous souls in the wine world and he has left a massive and impactful legacy on #nzwine especially. 

Our thoughts go to Claudia and to Mike's family. Rest in peace Mike.
