About the wine region Auckland

This large and very diverse region is home to some of New Zealand’s biggest wine companies, as well as numerous high-quality boutique vineyards, offering something for every palate.

Auckland is one of New Zealand's oldest wine regions, established in the early 1900s by passionate Croatian, Lebanese and English winemakers.

Spread across a large, geographically diverse area, the Auckland wine region encompasses three distinctive subregions, the island of Waiheke, historic West Auckland and stretches north to the coastal enclave of Matakana.

Auckland's subregions

Waiheke Island

Waiheke Island can be reached within 40 minutes from downtown Auckland. This picturesque island defines the boundaries of the Auckland region and contributes to its unique terroir. The warm, dry maritime climate promotes intensity, varietal depth, and purity of fruit. Waiheke has a comparatively small diurnal temperature range. Sea breezes cool the vineyards in the summer. The water maintains higher minimum temperatures during the nights. The island receives for more rainfall during the growing season than Hawke's Bay, New Zealand's other very successful producer of red blends and Syrah.
Waiheke Island has more recently also been applauded for its Chardonnay and Pinot Gris wines.

West Auckland

Many of New Zealand's oldest wine families still calling this region home, after settling here nearly 100 years ago. West Auckland is warm and fertile. The sub-region's old Chardonnay and Merlot vines produce fruit that is used to create stylish wines, which have gained much international acclaim.

Matakana

An hour north of Auckland are the pretty rolling hills of Matakana, a welcoming destination for wine tourists. Vines of Pinot Gris, Syrah and Cabernet are relatively young. The climate is warm, humid and maritime. Careful site selection is essential. The wines tend to be consumed locally.

Wine growing in the Auckland region

The dominant grape of Auckland is Chardonnay (81ha) followed by Merlot and Merlot blends (76ha), Syrah (51ha) and Pinot Gris (36ha).
