Whitehaven
Every bottle of Whitehaven wine proudly carries the anchor insignia, the distinctive quality marque of one of New Zealand's most respected family wine companies. Established in 1994 in the heart of the internationally renowned Marlborough region, Whitehaven is the realisation of the White family's vision to create a respected and critically acclaimed winery. Sailing the Pacific, they set a new course for the Marlborough Sounds, dropped anchor and launched a wine label - Whitehaven.



Today the company is headed by Sue White, an enthusiastic advocate of the region, who continues to make the dreams she shared with her late husband Greg a reality. Sue leads a small, talented, committed team who together are carving global recognition for the Whitehaven label, showcasing elegant, single varietal Marlborough wines to over a dozen countries. The Whitehaven philosophy centres on the pursuit of 'quality without compromise' a principle underpinning the entire wine-making cycle – from vineyard management to every bottle of pure Marlborough wine bearing the Whitehaven label.



In a relatively short history Whitehaven has evolved to become one of Marlborough's leading ambassadors, our award-winning wines bearing the distinctive anchor insignia are enjoyed around the world. It's a marque of quality, consistency and integrity.
Marlborough
When most people think of New Zealand wine, the first thing that comes to mind will be Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. This one variety more than any other helped springboard New Zealand on to the world-wine scene.



The region is located on the northern end of the south island, nestled around the town of Blenheim, and for many years was a sheep region. It was Montana wines, who in 1973 planted the first vines in the region “too far south to grow good wine.” At the time the region was the southernmost region in the country, but nowadays Central Otago takes south to a whole new level.



Plenty of sunshine hours, relatively low rainfall and cool temperatures provide the perfect conditions for growing world-class Sauvignon Blanc the region is renowned for. Other whites grown include Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer and Sparkling wines. Pinot Noir dominates the red varieties grown, though is typically lighter bodied than Central Otago or Martinborough Pinots.
