Wairarapa,  New Zealand

See Matahiwi Estate wines we sell

Alastair Scott spent part of his childhood in the pristine Wairarapa region near Wellington on New Zealand’s North Island. He always wanted to own a vineyard and after spending some time abroad he could no longer resist the call. The natural beauty and pristine environment made Wairarapa a natural choice. The region has a history of winemaking going back to the late 1800’s which was ended by the Temperance Movement which banned the production and sale of alcohol in New Zealand starting around 1900.

The modern era of Wairarapa started in the late seventies with the sub-region of Martinborough, which made the region famous with its Pinot Noir. Matahiwi Estate has taken the mythical Phoenix bird as its logo to signify a rebirth within the region. In a place where once vineyards were banned due to Temperance, Pinot Noir has found a home once again.
