Wineries & Vineyards of New Zealand 2006

Takatu Vineyard is sited on a warm north-facing hillside above Matakana village.

Each of the hand-tended densely planted vines help create truly distinctive wine. Low yields, open canopies and no irrigation give balanced ripe fruit with wonderful aromas and flavour intensity.

Sustainable viticultural practices are adhered to and all major jobs, including harvesting, are done by hand. Hence their dictum 'fruit of the vine work of human hands'.
