The ‘Golden Mile’ is the name given to a special strip of land in Marlborough located on the old riverbed soils in the sub region of Rapaura. This relatively small area of land has the most optimum wine growing conditions due to its unique microclimate. Some of the oldest and most famous Marlborough vineyards are planted in this area.
The intense ‘Rapaura’ flavors are nurtured in the winery, as they practice minimal winemakers intervention. This means they use the very best of traditional winemaking methods with the latest technology and their own passion for. The results are honest character wines with an old world texture and elegance. View all Staete Landt Wines
