Te Whare Ra (pronounce Tea Far-ee Ra) “The House in Sun” is situated in the Renwick sub-region of Marlborough. Originally established in 1979, the vineyard is one of the first established boutique producers in Marlborough. New owners, Jason and Anna Flowerday, have stuck to the original owner’s philosophy of estate-grown, limited release, hand-crafted wines which express “a somewhereness rather than a sameness”. Primarily aromatic white styles are grown, as well as superb Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The adjacent, mineral solis of the Awatere Valley also yields fruit for the Sauvignon Blanc.
