Cable Bay Vineyards - Marlborough
Awatere Valley, Marlborough – Cinders Vineyard & Rocky Vineyard on Redwood Pass Road
Our estate-owned vineyards enfold the banks of the Awatere River and are planted with Marlborough stars; Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay.
The Awatere Valley has become a renowned sub-region of Marlborough, with a global reputation for growing high-quality grapes that are vibrant and expressive of their unique terroir. Our carefully selected site benefits from naturally terraced land, which leads down to the Awatere River. The region is blessed with low rainfall and low vigour soils, predominantly formed from alluvial gravel, which lend remarkable texture and body to the wines.
The vines are also planted very close together – reminiscent of the outstanding French wine region of Burgundy – which results in lower yields of top quality fruit.
We are excited to announce that we are in conversion to organics under the BioGro regime at our Cinders vineyard, where we grow our Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir.
