We are a small organic vineyard / winery on Waiheke Island in Auckland's Hauraki Gulf. Awaroa is run by six partners, all with a shared common interest in making the best possible wine we can. We follow best organic practice and all viticulture and harvesting is done by hand.
We grow our grapes and produce our wines organically, while protecting and enhancing the land and its ecosystems. Our natural spring feeds into the Awaawaroa stream and is surrounded by established bush including Totara and Kauri. We have three vineyards planted on protected gently sloping north-west facing hills in the geographical centre of Waiheke Island. The soil is a mineral rich clay, highly suitable for the varieties we grow.
We produce small quantities of premium wine so we have limited distribution. Our wines are avilable from most stores on Waiheke and from Accent on Wine in Parnell. In 2018 we will be opening a smal tasting room at the top of the vineyard at 324 Waiheke Road.
