Grapes are sourced from our home vineyard, twenty acres of park-like grounds set in picturesque Waimauku, Auckland – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Malbec.
Grapes are also sourced from a single vineyard in Marlborough – Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Noir.
The fruit is hand-picked and the juices carefully blended to produce iconic wine styles that show the incredible depth, diversity and flavours of New Zealand.
The Winery and Estate vineyard is positioned in the tranquil Waikoukou Valley, Waimauku. Westbrook is one of several well-known wineries making their home in this wine-making haven, north-west of Auckland City. The first Sauvignon Blanc grown commercially in New Zealand was from this region. Surrounded by a farming landscape, the vineyard is nestled in a unique growing micro-climate, growing Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Malbec.
This is a rapidly growing region in viticulture gaining worldwide recognition. The Wiffen Estate Vineyards in the Wairau Valley currently supply Westbrook with a large percentage of Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with further plantings on these sites being planned in the coming years. Further up the valley contracts are being signed to develop more vineyards.
Marlborough has more hours of sunshine than other regions in New Zealand and a long slow ripening season extends well into late April, with cool nights preserving acidity and concentrating fruit flavours.
Went to a few wineries close to riverhead/kumeu, this is the best one so far! But this greeting you on the doorstep explains everything, you literally feel like home! Great wines too! Highly recommend!
Gorgeous location. Serene and restful surroundings. Super friendly staff. And the Crackling Rose is spectacular.
Great atmosphere and very friendly staff. Will visit again!
Delicious wine tasting and fun, knowledgeable host. Unpretentious and it's great to see the local businesses promoting each other. Looking forward to returning.
Outstanding wines. Outstanding location. We took a wine tour that had selected North Island wineries near Auckland. We particularly enjoyed this stop. Award winning wines in a beautiful setting. They were knowledgeable and served beautiful wines.
