    “There’s a beauty in not knowing how hard things will be sometimes.” Pete, Viticulturalist at Terrace Edge.

    Purchased by the Chapman family in 1999, originally a sheep farm in Waipara (north Canterbury) and converted by planting 2000 olive trees on the lower terrace. With zero experience and a complete trial and error approach, they’ve gone on to become a multi award winning, boutique Waipara wine producer that in 2018 was voted the NZ Organic Vineyard of the Year! Nice one guys!

    Speaking of not knowing things – you can’t say the same about Gourmet Traveller Magazine. A few years ago they called out these guys as “a winery to watch” – they were bang on!

    Much like the wine they produce it’s all hands on at Terrace Edge. Pete looks after the winemaking side of things (and some marketing, if he ever has time), Jill answers the phone and keeps the office in order, Nana is out in the vineyard mending the nets. And Bruce, well, you’ll find him knocking back a glass, running the wine tastings and giving visitors the yarn about their cool little family run business.

    This is their 2020 Rosé and as well as being certified organic, it’s a serious style with a bit more punch than your usual Rosé as it’s made almost entirely with Syrah grapes, which isn’t the norm for this variety.
