At Tiki we believe great wine is created in the vineyard and is an expression of place, people and time. With this in mind we selected Marlborough in NZ as the region where the world best Sauvignon Blancs have been crafted over the last few decades. We then searched Marlborough for high altitude terroir that would produce wines of elegance and distinction. We selected three vineyards in the upper reaches of the famous Wairau Valley and spent years nurturing these vineyards, and building a team of passionate people to produce low yielding grapes of outstanding quality. Tiki is a reflection of place, people and time – an embodiment of the spirit and purity of NZ.

Our entire fruit supply for our TIKI portfolio is either certified sustainable or farmed organic.  In our pursuit of fine wine, we follow agricultural, winemaking and business practices that are good for the earth and the vine, good for the farm worker and the farmer, and good for our colleagues and our customers. We do this not because we want to be known as “the greenest winery in N.Z”, but rather because we know that great wine comes from strong core values that are good for the planet and good for our land and vines, also it feels great to grow and farm this way.
