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

As we are now into winter mode our wee mooloos are As we are now into winter mode our wee mooloos are back out into the vineyard. 

We are break feeding them // so they just get a couple of rows a day which they eat down and then move on.

They are not on there for long periods like a mob of sheep // so no issues with compaction. 

After they have been through we put two rows of pruning wood onto the rows they have been on and then mulch it // so you get a mix of grass, prunings and manure which breaks down faster than the prunings alone

As you see they are super keen to get into it each day!

So sad to hear of the closure of @terroirswinebar So sad to hear of the closure of @terroirswinebar - feeling for all the Terroirs family today.

Such a special place -  which laid the ground work for so many - if only those walls could talk what tales they would have to tell!

The spirit lives on it's sister establishments of @soif_sw11 and @terroirseastdulwich

Today is the day to celebrate the contribution of Today is the day to celebrate the contribution of some of our smallest team members.

Today is World 🐝  day for 2021.

Bees are hugely important in food production and we are happy that by farming organically we provide them with a safe place to bee (pardon the dodgy 🐝 pun)
