Greystone is a 40-hectare organic vineyard perched on the unique limestone hills of the Waipara Valley, North Canterbury.
Winemaker, Dom Maxwell, and Viticulturist, Nick Gill, planted the vineyard together in 2004 and in that short time the team have twice won Decanter Trophies for best Pinot Noir, been named New Zealand Organic Vineyard of the Year and won the Air NZ trophy for best Riesling and best Pinot Noir.
All grapes are estate grown, vinified and bottled so that the Greystone team can ensure complete control in every aspect of the winegrowing process. All the vineyards are certified sustainable and managed with an eye to ensuring great fruit across all blocks. The rolling slopes of Omihi allow them a mix of clay, limestone and greensands so each of the 9 separate blocks can express itself uniquely.
At the top slopes are planted their most prestigious blocks with Erin's Block for Chardonnay and Brothers Reserve for Pinot Noir.
Passionate about creating authentic terroir-driven wines, Greystone have led the world in indigenous vineyard fermentation. Learn more about their process:
