VITICULTURE PIONEERS IN THE WAITAKI VALLEY

Our whānau collectively farms 20 hectares of grapes spread across 4 vineyards and are pioneers of viticulture in this valley having first determined viability in the late 1990’s for high quality, premium cool climate wines grown on the famous Waitakian Limestones on the southern bank of this significant awa (river).

WHAKAPAPA

Ostler Vineyards is majority owned by the extended Sinnott whānau (family) who are descendants of Tuwharetoa through our Kuia Ranamiria Kapereira, her father Hamana Tukorehu Kaperiera and his father Tukorehu Koanau, his mother Pikau Koanau and her father Haimona Te Heu Heu, from there our line traces back to our eponymous ancestors Tuwharetoa, Ngatoroirangi and the Arawa Waka.
