Marlborough is the place Rapaura Springs call home: to live and create wines of character and beauty. Their goal is to enhance the environment around them through sustainable vineyard and winemaking practices that will leave a natural legacy for future generations.
The journey of Rapaura Springs wines begins far from the vineyards, at a point where the earth claims a share of the Wairau River. After a six month journey through a rocky aquifer, the water is released to a spring that weaves through the vineyard. This spring, depicted on the label, provides both the crystal clear, pure water for their vines but also guides the philosophy behind this family–owned winery.
Launched to critical acclaim in New Zealand with the release of their 2008 Sauvignon Blanc (which was awarded Cuisine magazine’s highest rating of ‘Five Stars’ and ‘Best Buy’) Rapaura Springs continues to produce high quality, award winning wines from New Zealand’s most recognized wine region, winning 14 gold medals and three trophies in the past 11 months.
