: Moutere Hills Vineyard

Situated amongst the picturesque hills of the Moutere this family owned boutique vineyard and winery is owned and operated by Rusty Rayne and Lisa Goodson. The vineyards benefit from the moderating effect of the Tasman Bay to our north and are protected from severe weather by the surrounding Arthur and Richmond ranges.  The vines are on Moutere clay gravels, which give them a lovely fruit density, minerality and fine tannin. The Nelson area is one of New Zealand’s sunniest regions and clear skies and cool nights, which results in wines that have expressive flavour development in the fruit and a solid structure of fruit acid. Come and try them at Forsters restaurant cellar door or at the rustic Fox n Grapes bar (open every Friday night)
