Wairaru River Wines
Wairau River wines take their name from the river that runs through the heart of the Marlborough wine region. (Wairau is Maori for `many waters`).
The Rose family were pioneers in planting vines in the 1970`s and after originally selling the grapes to other wineries (like Cloudy Bay) they launched their own label in the early 1990`s.
Today their foresight has created a very successful company which remains family owned and run.
In June 2008, they were successful in attaining carbon neutral status for the farm and are aiming to be certified sustainable by the end of the year.
Wairau River is one of the largest independent wine estates in Marlborough, and the range of elegant wines is characteristically expressive of its Marlborough roots.
