At Paritua we appreciate that truly great wine speaks of the land in which it was born.
The name Paritua is a tribute to the Paritua Stream, which meanders gently through the vineyard. Paritua means the meandering stream above the ancient river. The vineyard is planted over the historical riverbed of the nearby Ngaruroro River which flowed through pre the 1860s earthquake. It is a name that also acknowledges the connection with the land and the people of New Zealand.
Our 53-hectare vineyard is all stony soils and gentle contours, surrounded by hills and blessed with long, lingering summers and clear, crisp winters… exceptional conditions to create exceptional wines.
With a state of the art winery, growing and crafting premium Hawke’s Bay wine provides us with many opportunities not just for work but for a way of life which adds to the passion and purpose of what we do and why we do it.
Wines bearing our boutique label Paritua are produced only in outstanding vintages, whilst our Stone Paddock selection of wines are made every year using grapes grown on our own estate and carefully selected regional vineyards.
We invite you to experience our Paritua and Stone Paddock wines – wines that not only reflect a distinctly New Zealand style, but also our passion for quality winemaking.
