The heart of the vineyard is the people. We’re lucky to have enjoyed the company of a passionate and resourceful team of winemakers and viticulturists over the years who have all contributed to developing the character of our vineyards and wines. They have absorbed the enthusiasm and care of the Goldwater family who believe enjoying an excellent glass of wine with friends in a stunning environment is great reward.

The creation of the Goldwater Wine Science Centre at the vineyard by the University of Auckland also means the vineyard enjoys the energy and enthusiasm of students pursuing their academic passion.
