Brian Cribb – Owner
We are a small family business, managing a boutique vineyard, and B&B accommodation. We believe that wine should be fun and that life is too short to drink bad wine, so we aim to produce stunning, premium quality, estate grown, artisan wine in small batches.
We are New Zealanders who bought the property in 2017 and have upgraded all aspects – sheds, irrigation, water supply, new vines, new fencing, gates, shelter belts & pastures.
We renovated the old farmhouse which now has four self-contained luxury Bed & Breakfast accommodation units – The Loft and Studio.
Throughout we are committed to improving the environment by using sustainable practices and going as green as possible. As part of the ‘Greening Waipara’ Project, which aims to improve biodiversity and encourage native birds which do not threaten the grapes, we planted native plants by our irrigation pond and adjacent field.
We support key local organizations and are members of the Waipara Valley Wine Growers Association and New Zealand Winegrowers.
So come and stay a while and visit the local wineries, cafes, restaurants, wonderful scenery and the Waipara, Amberley and Hurunui District attractions.
