The 45 acre vineyard was established in 1980, one of the earliest in the district. The terrain is flat with slight undulations, the deep river gravel subsoil with varying depths of fertile river silt of top, provides perfect drainage, conducive to the successful growing of grapes. The Cairnbrae Vineyard, situated on Jacksons Road, is traditionally one of the earliest vineyards to be harvested in Marlborough. View all Cairnbrae Wines
Sitting pretty on the northern tip of New Zealand's south island, Marlborough has become synonymous with New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. As well it should be – Marlborough is the primary region for those delicious, citrusy, summer-lovin' wines with vibrant acidity and pungent, grassy, grapefruit flavors. Sauvignon Blanc is the main grape here; Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Riesling are also made.
