Lake Chalice are intimate inhabiters of their land, its climate and its seasons.
Under the oversight of Head Winemaker, Chloe Gabrielsen, they draw upon
Marlborough's singular regional diversity via their unique vineyard sites.
Mainstay of the portfolio is the Falcon series with its signature flavours. Given
the New Zealand falcon, the karearea, graces all of their bottles, it's no surprise
that Lake Chalice are proud supporters of the Marlborough Falcon Conservation
Trust. Thanks to introduced pests, persecution and electrocution by power
lines, these magnificent birds are under threat and increasingly hard to spot.
Lake Chalice work with the Trust on the Karearea Release Programme
to repopulate the region. Their most recent innovation is the introduction
of a hack box in their Eyrie vineyard (where the birds can shelter and be fed
before being released into the wild) and insulated electrical transformers
close to the vineyard to protect the birds. The hope is that by giving them time
and safe shelter, the karearea will remain in the area upon release.
