Te Mania is a family run business established by Jon and Cheryl Harrey, in 1990 near Nelson at the top of the South Island of New Zealand. Working and raising our family on the vineyard is a fantastic lifestyle and everyone enjoys pitching in. We have a great team working with us in the vineyard, winery and cellar door. We strive to produce the best fruit we can to make the finest wine for people to enjoy, we are located near the beautiful coastline of Tasman Bay.Our vineyards flourish on the ancient alluvial terraces through which rivers flow from the mountains to the sea.These stony soils, combined with Nelsons cool maritime climate and high sunshine hours, produce grapes and wines of the finest quality.
Steve has previously made wine at other renowned vineyard's including Greenhough and the cult New Zealand winery Dry River. During that time Steve has been globe trotting around the world to learn as much as possible from the worlds best in other top international wine growing regions. He has worked vintages at Domaine Dujac in Burgundy, Heinz Schmitt in Mosel, Saintsbury in Carneros and Schaetzel in Alsace. So its not hard to work out his favourite wines are riesling and pinot noir!“I believe that we make world-class wine in Nelson. The region has the highest sunshine hours in New Zealand and cool nights which produces aromatic wines with an extra special character. I like to use a mixture of traditional techniques learnt working in old-world countries like France and Germany and new world technology like refrigeration and stainless steel tanks. It is this blend of creativity/art and science that I love about winemaking."
