TE WHARE RA
The oldest boutique winery and vineyard in Marlborough, Renwick's Te Whare Ra, aka TWR, was first established in 1979. Both winery and vineyard are certified organic.
Te Whare Ra has been owned and operated since 2003 by two winemakers, Anna and Jason Flowerday. She's an Aussie from McLaren Vale and he's a Kiwi from Marlborough. 2023 sees them celebrate 20 years of looking after the property.
Both come from multi-generational wine backgrounds, and after years of working for other people, they made the leap to doing their own thing. The TWR wines are truly handmade; everything is handpicked and hand-sorted, intervention is minimal and the attention to detail is meticulous.
The last few years have been incredibly tough for many winemaking operations, including Anna's and Jason's. Imagine life as a winery of this size, with the majority of your sales through restaurants that are suddenly closed indefinitely.
We're delighted that TWR have made it through, and a recent peek at the wines shows that they're making their best yet.
