    GREYSTONE WINES: New Zealand's first winery to be certified carbon zero!

    From Waipara, North Canterbury, Greystone is the first winery in New Zealand to be certified net carbon zero. Also certified organic with BioGro and practising regenerative viticulture, but above all Greystone are known for producing a broad range of handcrafted, exceptional and completely delicious wines!

    After searching the world for the perfect place to grow cool-climate wines, the Thomas family established Greystone Vineyard on the slopes of the Teviotdale hills in the Waipara Valley in 2004.

    In 2007 the first wine was produced from there and over the years Greystone has grown amid accolades and acclaim to be recognised as one of New Zealand’s best wineries. The owners love the region and with their wines, aim to capture the essence of this site and reflect this in every bottle of Greystone.

    Greystone draws its name from the unique limestone conglomerate that we find as the bedrock on which our vine roots grow in. A limestone mix of fossils, sea shells and small pebbles that have been fused together through the seismic movement of North Canterbury. Over time this ancient seabed has been pushed and folded upwards to form the Teviotdale Hills.

    Greystone believe true fine wines are temporal, each vintage a fleeting snapshot of a place in time. They don’t seek to manipulate the final product with additives or flavourings – instead allow a true interpretation of the soil, vines and season to shine through.

    Greystone revel in protecting the land. The many ecological benefits of organic practices include healthy soils, healthy waterways, biodiversity, and a safe place for bees and other beneficial insects. The use of natural products throughout production provides a safe and happy work environment for their dedicated team. “We see our commitment to organic winegrowing as a bigger picture collaboration with our plant towards a more stable climate and sustainable ecosystem.”

    At Moore Wilson’s we sell a range of Greystone wines including their Pétillant Naturel, a non-disgorged natural bubbles that is intensely refreshing with fresh and lively aromatics of pineapple, lemon balm and citrus fruits.  This wine is thought by Greystone to perfectly capture the limestone soils of their hillside block.

    TOHU WINES: The World's First Maori Owned Winery

    In 1998, the world’s first Maori-owned wine business was established as Tohu Wines. Today Tohu Wines operates as an independent company under the umbrella of Kono, the food and beverage arm of Wakatu Incorporation.

    As a family owned business, it is important to Tohu to uphold the legacy of its owners and their ancestors in its practice. The ancestors of the Tohu whanau were farmers, fishermen, planters, and providores. They were astute, creative and entrepreneurial. Tohu Wines make sure to enhance the resources and whenua passed down through generations.

    Today, Tohu create internationally recognised award-winning wines, all while remaining true to their deeply held values which include hihiritanga, kaitiakitanga and manaakitanga – doing things better, guardianship, and caring.

    The winemaking philosophy is to create wines that capture the flavours of each region’s unique landscapes, whilst upholding respect and protection of the land for future generations.

    The vineyards are certified under Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand, and this as an integral part of the values under-pinning the whole operation - working with the environment without compromising quality and integrity.

    Tohu’s values of excellence, kindness, and innovation are clearly reflected in their  wines. Whether it's a family lunch, wedding or even a Matariki celebration, Tohu produces wines perfect for any occasion. Moore Wilson’s has been selling Tohu wines since 2014.
