Omaka Springs Es­tates

New Zealand Classic Car - - Summer Wine Guide -

Lo­cated in the beau­ti­ful South­ern Val­leys of Marl­bor­ough, Omaka Springs Es­tates pro­duces ter­roir­ex­pres­sive fine wines and olive oil. The sole pro­ducer of es­tate wines and olive oil in the Omaka Val­ley, all grapes and olives are grown on Omaka Springs Es­tates’ 180acre es­tate, lo­cated right in the heart of the val­ley. All the wine is then cre­ated by hand to the high­est stan­dards by wine­maker, Ian Marchant.

Omaka means ‘where the springs flow’ when trans­lated from Maori, and de­rives its name from the land it­self. The val­ley con­tains min­eral-rich nat­u­ral springs that me­an­der through Omaka Springs’ vine­yards, feed­ing the soil and im­part­ing a dis­tinct, sig­na­ture nuance of min­er­al­ity. Omaka Springs Es­tate is the per­fect lo­ca­tion for a sum­mer’s day pic­nic this hol­i­day sea­son — they are open from 10am to 4pm, Mon­day through Fri­day (closed week­ends).
