Hillersden is the story of one family and one winemaker crafting single estate wines at the heart of what was once a settlers’ township of the Upper Wairau Valley. A place that was – until we moved in – a faint memory of an industrious pre-war New Zealand.
The entire Hillersden team is committed to reviving Hillersden; to honouring its tradition and rich history by creating a fully sustainable vineyard and farm. In doing so, we build a legacy and a new home to welcome the modern wine lover.
We like to keep close to home the traditional and rustic processes of winemaking, while taking an elevated, engineered approach to sustainability striving for the highest of environmental standards. Crafting a Vine-to-Table wine starts with a real connection and love of the land, and what it has to offer. We love our wines and hope you will too.
