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

Friday shout out to this bunch of bloody champions Friday shout out to this bunch of bloody champions who are the true stars of our industry!

We have now completed 95% of our winter pruning for this season and pretty much all tied down too. We couldn't have done it without them. 

Many of these guys have been coming back to Marlborough for several seasons from Kiribati and we are so very appreciative of their hardwork and dedication // to not only set our vines up well for the next growing season // but for many years to come.

Despite what many think - it is not an unskilled job - and the difference between doing it well and doing it badly can impact not only the longevity of a vineyard but also the quality of the fruit it produces.
