Practices & Techniques

We believe in and practice sustainable wine growing, environmentally, economically and emotionally. We are committed to being accountable for the environment that we can control. Wine growing is a long-term business. The vineyards are the home of vines, flora, fauna and people. We want them all to be around for a long time. Our vineyards have been part of the Sustainable Wine growing programme since the pilot programme was first introduced in 1998.

Estate Vineyards / AVA

Goldie Estate is the name of our boutique vineyard and winery, nestled amongst 30 acres of native bush and rolling vineyards on Waiheke Island overlooking Putiki By. It’s here that we create character wines that draw on the knowledge and experience of Kim and Jeanette Goldwater, who founded winegrowing on Waiheke in 1978. We continue their philosophy of nurturing and continually improving our established vineyards. The vineyard is also home to the University of Auckland’s Wine Science Centre, providing innovative education and research for the benefit of the wider wine industry. The immersion of students and researchers in an operating winery setting also means the winery benefits through access to leading academic developments.
