The Haythornthwaite Vineyard is located on the outskirts of the small village of Martinborough in the South East corner of the North Island of New Zealand. Considered to be the driest area in the North Island, Martinborough is an hour-and-a-quarter’s drive from Wellington over the Rimutaka mountain range.
The vineyard is a family owned boutique vineyard of 11 acres, focusing on quality rather than quantity. Located on the ancient alluvial Martinborough river terraces made up of deep, free-draining gravel overlaid with a gravely silt loam.
Haythornthwaite Wines aims to produce high quality award winning wines. Our wine philosophy begins in the vineyard. We believe that quality wines can only be made from the best fruit we can grow through sustainable vineyard management.
