Ash Ridge
In 2014 Ash Ridge won the Hawke's Bay 'Bayleys A&P' Winery of the Year award for the second time in only 3 years!



If you make the trip up to the Bridge Pa triangle of Hawke's Bay, you'll find the winery of Ash Ridge. The set up is quite modest with no fancy buildings to boast about, but boy can they make a good wine. The Syrah varietal is the probably the strongest performer over at Ash Ridge where the growing conditions make for beautifully aromatic expressions of the variety.



The winery has two vineyards both located in the 'Bridge Pa Triangle' growing region. The soils in the area settled over 10,000 years ago when the ancient Ngaruroro River changed its course. When the river was diverted it left behind gravelly, arid, unfertile soils over which the vines are now planted. The exceptional composition of the soils combined with long summer days and cool nights helps Ash Ridge winemaker Lauren Swift maximise the flavours.



Ash Ridge's wines have picked up countless medals over the past few years on the New Zealand show judging circuit and consistently present a great value proposition fr high-quality Hawke's Bay wines.
Hawkes Bay
New Zealand’s second largest wine region (behind Marlborough), Hawkes Bay is on the east coast of the north island, to the south of Gisborne, and is New Zealand’s leading wine and food tourism destination. Many of the finest wines come out of the Hawkes Bay wine region.



A temperate climate with lots of sun is suited to superb Chardonnays in the whites and also later ripening red varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc (Bordeaux varietals) and Syrah.



A very special sub region in the Hawkes Bay region is the Gimblett Gravels. This sub region was thought to be not even good enough to graze sheep on, but in 1981 was planted under vine and now represents some of the world’s finest full bodied red wines. The unique terroir of the Gimblett Gravels comes from the old Ngaruroro River which until flowed through what is now known as the Gimblett Gravels, dumping gravel and heavy sands. The earthquake of 1931 changed the course of the river, leaving bare 800 hectares of prime new world terroir. Being 15km inland it doesn’t get the cooling sea breezes, so the region can get much hotter than the rest of Hawkes Bay.
