About

If you want to learn about wine and how to taste wine properly, come for a wine tasting at Kerr Farm Wine and ask Jaison to explain anything you need to know about wine and wine tasting. We also have the oldest Pinotage vines in New Zealand, something we are very proud of. These Pinotage vines make beautiful wine which is available for tasting. Another favorite is the Pamela Syrah, named after my mother, we only make two barrels of this, that's about 500 bottles, so it is very special. Also available for tasting.

History

We purchased the vineyard in 1989. Our interest in wine and grape growing was the driving force for us, we were particularly inspired by the potential offered by the Auckland region to produce wine with alternative varietal characters to those of other regions.

At first we concentrated on the bringing the vineyard up to date, we removed old hybrid vines and increased our plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinotage, and Chardonnay. We also added Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah to our vineyard. Much of our crop is still produced from the mature original vines. We understand that our Pinotage vines are some of the very earliest to be established in New Zealand.

1995 was the first year of wine making for Kerr Farm Vineyard. We produced about 900 cases that year and since then have increased our production slowly and steadily to our current output of about 2500.
