TUKU is the world’s first Māori winemakers collective, bringing together awarded Māori wine companies based on their shared values of the land, family and hospitality, together offering a wide range of premium varietals from the most famous wine growing regions of Aotearoa New Zealand.
The TUKU collective is made up of Māori owned, NZ-owned wine companies: Te Pā Family Vineyards, Tiki Wine & Vineyards, Bird Wines, Kuru Kuru Wines, and Ostler Wine. These wine companies are complemented by diverse iwi origins, from Tauranga Takitimu Waka and Rotorua-Te Arawa Waka in the north to Ngati Awa, Ngai Tahu and Ngati Tuwharetoa in the south.
When you buy TUKU wines, you are supporting indigenous producers who are connected to the land and to their wines, and you are also supporting the exciting and developing Māori economy. You are buying from people and their families, nurturing growth and success for future generations.
