Greenstone Point brings the very best of New Zealand wine to you.

Established in 1997, we constantly craft outstanding examples of New Zealand wine that challenge conventions and push boundaries.  Our wines are exciting with intensity of flavour and an easy drinkability. We bring a true taste of New Zealand to the world.

Our Wines

Our wine is made from select fruit from one of New Zealand’s most exciting vineyard regions, the Waipara Valley.  The climate and soils of this area provide ideal growing conditions for aromatic varieties such as Pinot Gris and Riesling.  These wines have great intensity of flavour and are the varieties the area has become known for.

Pinot noir is one of the most widely planted varieties in the region and the wines are wonderfully rich and spicy with great early drinking potential.

The Waipara Valley is also building a strong reputation for exciting, fruity Sauvignon Blanc full of tropical fruit flavours and light acidity.

Greenstone Point vineyards was established to bring the best of new zealand wine to the world.

Our mission is to make exceptional examples of quality New Zealand wine, giving you a true taste of New Zealand.

We carefully select premium fruit from one of New Zealand’s most exciting vineyard regions, the Waipara Valley.

We truly believe that great wine is made in the vineyard and we place a significant emphasis on our vineyard management and sustainability practices.  Our winery is based in the heart of the Waipara Valley and we work in close partnership with our vineyard growers, allowing the fruit to dictate the winemaking process.

Our winery and all our vineyards are fully accredited with Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand.  We constantly strive to improve our sustainability in both our wine production and our environmental management practices.

The waipara valley

Waipara Valley is New Zealand’s smallest but fastest growing wine region.  The area has a great diversity of soils and a unique micro-climate.  This sub-region of North Canterbury boasts warm summer temperatures, extended autumn ripening and drying Nor’Wester winds.  The variety of sites and long warm seasons produce grapes with stunning diversity of flavour and amazing aromatic fruit intensity.

We select only the best fruit from five vineyard sites throughout the region. The diversity of the fruit provides huge blending potential allowing us to maximise the flavour potential of the fruit. We fully embrace the philosophies and principles of Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand and were one of the first wineries in the area to sign up to the program.  We employ careful vineyard management practices and minimal intervention in the winemaking process to continue to improve our sustainable wine production.

By treating the land and the fruit with respect we allow the true characters of the fruit to shine through in the wine to give you a true taste of New Zealand.

New zealand greenstone

New Zealand Greenstone is a highly valued and treasured stone unique to the South Island of New Zealand.  Known as Ponamu in Maori culture, Greenstone represents strength and beauty and is sought after and prized by those who wear it.  It carries strong significance for early Maori culture, modern-day New Zealander’s and visitors alike, and is often believed to embody the natural beauty and strength of the country itself.

Greenstone Point wine epitomises the stunning natural beauty of New Zealand and the seamless meeting of ancient cultural beliefs and traditions with a modern approach to the world.  The landscape and climate of New Zealand perfectly lends itself to winemaking.  It is this marrying of an ancient art approached in a modern way that is the driving philosophy behind Greenstone Point wines.

We are proud of what our country provides and are always looking for innovative ways to produce a wine that embodies the spirit of New Zealand.
