The Landing Wines Company
The story of wine production in New Zealand is thought to have started in 1819 in the Bay of Islands, where The Landing is located. The Landing has continued to harness the richness of the area with the establishment of an innovative, sustainable vineyard.
The Landing’s vineyard spans nine hectares and is the largest working vineyard in Northland. Beginning in 2007 with two hectares of Chardonnay and Syrah vines, plantings have since expanded to include Sangiovese, Pinot Gris, Montepulciano, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Plans are in place to expand the vineyard by a further five hectares.
The vineyard produces 50 tons of grapes annually, and makes wine from them at a state-of-the-art winery building that opened on the property in 2020.
The Landing’s vineyard is a member of Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand and has enjoyed extensive accolades and awards in recent years. The Landing Wines are stocked by a growing number of premium retailers and restaurants.
