WHISTLING BUOY

Whistling Buoy wines, is a family-owned boutique vineyard and winemaking company situated within the Crater of Lyttelton Harbour, Banks Peninsula. From two unique sites we grow, and produce limited quantities of terroir-specific wines of great individuality and character. Our exceptional wines are produced from two exceptional vineyards. The original (Half Acre) home vineyard is located in Lyttelton Harbour (maritime reserve) on Banks Peninsula. The second vineyard (Kokolo) is situated at the head of the Bay, Lyttelton Harbour some 3km west from the home vineyard. Our mission is to provide stylish wines, that are a reflection of — the land and the maritime influence on it — the history of time and process.With total commitment to quality and to what is good for both body and soul. A product of the synergy of land and sea from whence all life came.Our cultural perspective on vineyard management is for it to be totally sustainable with a focus on good management practices. In both vineyards we focus on low yielding vines and intensive canopy management techniques – shoot and cluster thinning, lateral removal, extensive leaf plucking — to maximise grape quality. All our premium single vineyard wines are labelled “WHISTLING BUOY” after the marker Buoy between Adderley and Godley Heads which was used to aid navigation into the Port of Lyttelton.
