ROYCE McKEAN - Ngāti Rānginui


Adventures in far away lands led the Tiki whānau home and we certainly have never forgotten how lucky we are to do what we do in such a beautiful place. That sense of adventure and feeling of freedom that we get from living in New Zealand has never left us and is at the very heart of Tiki and the bespoke wines that we produce.

As well as Tiki honouring Royce’s great great grandfather, the name also represents a hand carved Māori treasure which, when gifted bestows good fortune and love on others. We craft our wines with this same spirit in mind.

The TIKI name has been chosen in honour of Royce’s great great grandfather, Ngati Uenuku Chieftain, Tiki Tere Mihi.

The Tiki whānau is an indigenous New Zealand wine producer committed to sustainable winegrowing with an uncompromising commitment to quality. We care for our vines under the guiding Māori principles of Kaitiakitanga: guardianship, protection and preservation of the earth. Royce’s family has been living and farming in New Zealand (Aotearoa) for hundreds of years.
