Take the finest vines from around the world, transplant them to an island of ancient soils, bake in unique micro-climate until grapes become luscious. Now, beneath the watchful eye of Putiki O Kahu, come savour Wild Estate. Best enjoyed in relaxed environs, while contemplating a sedate game of giant chess.
Just 7 acres of vines in the blessed Onetangi Valley, this boutique wine is sold exclusively through the eatery at Wild on Waiheke and our dinky cellar door tasting room (as well as our craft beers if that's your fancy). Our vineyard's been undergoing replanting as although Waiheke's known more for red varietals, most people visit us in Summer so we basicly needed more whites. We've planted pinot gris and chardonnay to keep up with demand, and Waiheke produces some stunning styles.
Being a boutique vineyard, we're too small to have our own winemaking facilities, so instead we've tapped into some of New Zealand's finest looking after our wine; Matt Sloane is our viticulturist, who takes care of many boutique wineries on the Island, and our wine is made next door at Mudbricks Winemaking facility by award winning winemaker Patrick Newton. We feel quite blessed to be in such great hands.
Here you get a great wine at a decent price, so come on down and try for yourself!
Our smallest block is planted with old vines chardonnay, which was initially planted to make a barrel every year for our owners. Last year, for the very first time, we made it available to the public under our very first release of a Reserve wine under the Wanderlust Reserve series. Wanderlust....this incorporates the massive journey we've undertaken to get here, as well as the intrepid travellers like yourselves who have journeyed across sea to visit us. This didn't last long, there's just 100 bottles available each year and they sell out fast!
Simply email us your order in cases of 12's, mixed orders welcome, and we can ship it straight to you!
Our vineyard is lovingly managed by Matt Sloane, of Sloane Viticulture. Matt takes pride in managing a variety of smaller vineyards around Waiheke, who, just like us are too small to have our own Viticulturist.
With Matt's guidance we have recently invested in the Vineyard to improve vine quality, consistency and volume of our grapes.
In 2015 we invested in planting new vines to keep up with the busy demand of our restaurant. As our wine solely onsite, it's an ongoing game of sale & demand. New varietals include the addition of Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Petit Verdot and Syrah to our vineyard, with more planting planned to accomodate future sales growth.
