Welcome to our Nelson Family Vineyard

Welcome to our Nelson Family Vineyard

Our six grape varieties prosper in the balanced maritime climate and Moutere clay soil of the 20 hectare Blackenbrook family vineyard halfway between Nelson and the Abel Tasman National Park.

We are Daniel and Ursula Schwarzenbach, small winemakers with a big vision and a genuine determination to improve the style of each vintage. Proudly hands-on, we nurture grapes from the soil to the bottle in our sustainable vineyard and gravity-fed winery.

Let our wines speak for themselves.
