The CharRees vineyard story began in 2007 when Charles & Esma Hill’s visionary dream of owning a vineyard/restaurant became a reality when they bought an established vineyard on the outskirts of Ashburton in January 2007.

Upon picking our first vintage in 2008 we have now established our own label “CharRees”. The name “CharRees” derives from the owners Christian names Charles & Esma plus daughters, Charlotte and Sheree.

We started our cellar door sales in Dec 2009 with our 2008 vintage. We have plans of setting up a restaurant in the near future.

Estate Vineyards / AVA

The vineyard which was established in 1999 now consists of 4000 Pinot Gris and 3500 Pinot Noir vines, and in 2008 we planted 1800 Riesling plants.
