Main Divide

The “Main Divide” is the local name for the Southern Alps that form the backbone of the South Island of NZ and are a distinct geographical feature of the Waipara Valley.

Main Divide wines are produced by the Donaldson family at their Waipara Winery. The fruit for these wines have been sourced from from various vineyard sites around the Valley and have been chosen for their ability to express pure regional and varietal characters. The Donaldson family works closely with the growers throughout the season to to ensure the highest quality of fruit is produced.

The wine range includes Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Merlot Cabernet. There is also a small reserve range produced in the best years paying homage to the Donaldson family’s Ngai Tahu roots.
