tikiteri mihi

Chief Tiki Tere Mihi
Royce’s great great grandfather


A brush with death in an avalanche helped Royce McKean to see the wisdom of his Maori ancestors care and love for the land.
To reflect this reverence for the land of his great-great-grandfather, Ngati Uenuku chieftain Tiki Tere Mihi, Royce and wife Sue named TIKI Wine & Vineyards in his honour.
TIKI is an indigenous NZ wine producer that is committed to sustainable winegrowing and to working with the environment without compromising quality. We care for our vines under the guiding Maori principles of Kaitiakitanga: guardianship, protection and preservation of the earth.
The TIKI is a hand carved Maori treasure which, when gifted, bestows good fortune and love on others. We craft our wines with the same spirit in mind.
Our key varieties are Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir Rosé, and Pinot Noir.
