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

Never fails to amaze me how quickly nature gets th Never fails to amaze me how quickly nature gets things moving again once our autumn rains arrive.

85mm of rain this week after an extended dry spell and no significant rain since late Jan/early Feb.

So great to see the growth in our mid-rows popping up again in a matter of almost hours once the rain soaked in
