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

Just released our long awaited 2019 SV Syrah and h Just released our long awaited 2019 SV Syrah and have been super thrilled with the response so far, including this review just in from @camdouglasms 
Our last release was the 2016 and we didn't release one from 2017 or 2018 as we didn't think it was up to scratch,  so this 2019 has been a long time coming. 
Thanks for your patience and we trust you will love this one as much as you have our past efforts

Hello to all the Gewurz fans out there - our 2019 Hello to all the Gewurz fans out there - our 2019  SV Gewurz goes live today on the website!

This release is very special, as it marks the 40th birthday of our old vines from the orginal vineyard here which were first planted in 1979. Also very special to us all as is one of the first wines that Te Whare Ra was recognised for.

This won't last long as we had minuscule crops from the 2019 vintage due to bad weather over flowering, which Gewurz is particularly susceptible to.

So please get in quickly if you want to secure some for your cellar
