Terrace Edge is a boutique family estate in the Waipara Valley, New Zealand, committed to producing hand-crafted wine and extra virgin olive oil of premium quality.
Terrace Edge overlooks the Waipara River, with stunning views of the valley and the surrounding hills. Heat summation during the day is retained by gravels left behind by an ice-age glacier. The soils are a silt loam, which are free draining and of relatively low fertility, resulting in naturally reduced vine vigour. This produces low yields of optimally ripened grapes.
Our fruit is always handpicked and hand sorted. Natural and gentle winemaking practices are used, with minimal intervention. Fermentation is predominantly with wild yeasts, indigenous to the winery, to give greater complexity and individuality to our wines. We are relentless in our quest to produce wines of a consistently high standard.
