Kahurangi Estate is a family owned boutique winery specialising in hand-made wines. The vineyard was first planted in 1973 and has the oldest commercial vines in the South Island. Kahurangi is a Maori word with a number of translations, two being “treasured possession” and “precious jewel”. The logo is a stylised reproduction of the Nikau palm, which proliferates in the valleys and west coast beaches of the Kahurangi National Park. The Nikau palm was a treasured source of food and flax to the indigenous Maori tribes in the South Island.

Neil is a brewer by profession, having owned his own brewery and brewing beer for 10 years. The progression to winemaking seemed a natural choice and kick-started his new career with a Gold Medal and Trophy in the International Wine Challenge for our Kahurangi Unwooded Chardonnay 2005. Since then Neil has gone on to produce many Gold, Silver and Bronze medals for Kahurangi Estate and we are very proud to have him as our Chief Winemaker.
