Standing proud at the head of Marlborough’s Awatere Valley is Mount Tapuae-o-uenuku – the highest peak outside of New Zealand’s Main Divide. Its glaciers feed the Awatere River which meanders its way through some of New Zealand’s best wine growing country.
It was on this country that the Vavasour family settled in 1887, pioneering commercial grape-growing and winemaking. Peter and Anna Vavasour planted the first vines in the Dashwood district in 1986 and established the region’s first winery.
Awatere River, by Louis Vavasour (Peter and Anna Vavsour’s son) is a collection of award winning, low yield, premium quality wines that reflect the distinctive terroir of the alluvial river flats on which they were grown.
