About Mt. Beautiful New Zealand

Beautiful wine comes from a beautiful place. Mt. Beautiful wines are the expression of the wild, rugged and breathtakingly scenic region of North Canterbury. Certified-sustainable and estate-grown, these distinctively restrained wines let the pure terroir shine through.

Only eleven kilometers miles from the ocean, the vineyards are protected from harsh sea winds by their benevolent namesake, Mt. Beautiful. World-renowned scholar/entrepreneur and New Zealand native David Teece, spent two years searching for just this spot, where he could pioneer an undiscovered region and fulfill his dream of bringing the best of New Zealand to the world.

Mt. Beautiful is the first vineyard of a commercial size to be planted outside of an established New Zealand region in 20 years.

In addition to winemaking, Mt. Beautiful operates three farms that produce wool for the Smartwool market, beef for the Japan market and lamb for the U.S. market. The Mt. Beautiful Two Rivers Café and Wine Tasting Room is located in central Cheviot where locals and travellers alike can enjoy a diverse menu featuring local produce, meats and cheeses.
