Was so great to see your wine on the wine list in a fantastic restaurant in Fiji...!

Introducing Charlie, our vineyard Pugglington...yes that's right, a pug crossed with a Beddlington Terrier. Loves to chase rabbits, co-pilot tractor driving and also thinks he is a lap dog!

We are extremely proud and excited to share that we have been recognised by The Real Review as one of New Zealand's Top Wineries, awarded for consistency to produce excellent wine across vintages and varietals. Thanks to Bob Campbell and his team for your ongoing support!

How’s that for an office view?! A very chilly start to the day on our de Bettencor vineyard.

Thanks for the beautiful write up Stuff...we can't help but agree!

Just a little reminder we are OPEN on this beautiful public holiday, so pop in for a tasting!

Our vineyard team are busy pruning young vines, under the expert watch of Charlie of course 🐶

Our Alchemy Ice 2018 sitting pretty on a less gloomy day. Made by blast freezing Riesling and Gewurtztraminer, a homage to the great ice wines of Canada.

It’s a bubbles kind of day....actually, what Saturday isn’t?! #anyexcuse. Happy weekend wine lovers!

Our 2019 Harvest is already seeming like a distant memory and our vineyards are now looking so very different. A little throwback to warmer days, and greener vines!

Happy International Chardonnay Day wine lovers!

Being alongside Pinot Noir as the first varietals planted here back in 1996, we are pretty keen on this little grape. Contributing not only to our stunning Akarua Chardonnay, but also a key component in our crowd favourite Vintage and NV Brut.

Last month we had the pleasure of hosting some of our fantastic wine club members for our 20th harvest celebration. The sun came out after a frosty night and turned into the most beautiful afternoon on the vineyard!

We are excited to share that our much anticipated '25 Steps' Pinot Noir is now available for purchase at your local Glengarry Wines store! Pop in to pick up a bottle today.

Sales manager @zoenophile jumped at the chance to get her hands dirty between trade visits.

Congratulations to our friends over at Rapid Labels for winning a GOLD medal at the Pride in Print awards with our new Akarua Sauvignon Blanc label.

"A sensational wine and an exemplary ambassador for the riper Central Otago style. Violets, spice, fresh strawberries and thyme sit alongside nuanced vanilla and cedar"
