De La Terre Winery
Hawke’s Bay’s only earth brick winery. They are situated on the Napier-Taihape Road, a relaxing 20 minute drive from Taradale or Hastings through scenic pastureland. They are a small family-run business, owned and operated by Tony and Kaye Prichard, and Gracie, the Winery Dog (their self-appointed Welcoming Committee).
They produce small volumes of high quality wines with the emphasis on elegance, texture and balance. The name ‘de la terre’ literally meaning ‘of the earth’, is a reference to both the vineyard soils and the earth brick construction used for the winery and cellar door. They have hand-crafted this business from scratch, driven by their passion to create, to produce quality products, to provide a personal touch to whatever they do, and to be able to offer something a little different to the norm.
