De La Terre

‘De La Terre,’ – literally “of the earth,’ is a reference to both the vineyard soils and the earth brick construction used for the winery and cellar door. Owner Tony Prichard is a legend in New Zealand winemaking, with 15 vintages at Church Road. All reserve wines are estate-bottled and hand-labelled in individually numbered bottles.

“Our winemaking methods are largely traditional with emphasis on minimal handling to retain the integrity and concentration of fruit. Food and wine matching is a particular focus – the wine style is designed to provide elegant wines to accompany food…All our grapes are hand-picked from single vineyards.”
