Our Place \

From the ground up.

The past decade has been spent developing Paritua, literally from the ground up. We’ve long been inspired by the great wines of Burgundy and Bordeaux and – in 2001 – we ordered the best rootstock and clone options to enable us to produce new world wines inspired by those great classics.

Our vines began to arrive in 2003. Since then, over 120 acres have been planted in three phases: seventy percent of our land is devoted to fruit that will yield the big red blends we favour – Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec – with Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay completing the picture. We have also installed a full overhead sprinkler frost protection system to eliminate crop loss.

Over the course of development, we worked on the vineyard infrastructure and began to collaborate with leading New Zealand architect, Simon Carnachan, of Crosson Clarke Carnachan Architects (Auckland). Simon understood and shared our vision for bold architecture that truly embraces the landscape. Our barrel hall, executive offices, vineyard manager’s home and guest suite, implement shed and frost pump shed are now complete.

The Facilities \

architecture embracing the landscape.

Paritua boasts not only state-of-the-art winemaking facilities, but stunning architectually designed barrel room and service outbuildings, sophisticated cellar door room and a world-class boardroom facility.
