“An intimate knowledge of this dramatic southern pocket of Marlborough rewards us
with wines of extraordinary elegance, perfume and texture”

Vavasour Vineyards – the Awatere River and the Ocean

Vavasour is the founding winery of Marlborough’s smaller, cooler Awatere Valley.

In 1986, the Awatere was a distant landscape dotted with sheep and thought too extreme for vines, so Vavasour had the pick of the Valley. That risk was rewarded: right from the start, intense layers of flavour declared a unique presence that demanded international attention. Vavasour put the Awatere on the map as a sub-region to note.
