wairau river wines

The Rose family have a long and proud pioneering history in the Marlborough region with Phil and Chris Rose establishing their vineyards on the banks of the Wairau River in 1978.

Today, all five Rose children are deeply connected to Marlborough and along with their partners are involved in the family wine business.

Each family member plays a key role in the business, from viticulture and winemaking, to finance, administration and the running of the popular Wairau River Cellar Door and Restaurant.

The edge of the Wairau River is a special place for growing grapes. A unique place that combines the very best of Marlborough’s soil, climate and terrain. This is where the Rose family have pioneered and nurtured the Wairau River vineyards for over forty years, producing some of the best wines Marlborough has to offer.
