About Omaka Springs Estates:

Omaka Springs Estates, comprising of Omaka Springs Estates Limited (the winery), and Omaka Springs Estates (the vineyards), is a family business owned solely by Geoff and Robina Jensen.

Omaka Springs Estates produces cool climate varietal grapes from the 92 acres of vineyards located on the Estates’ 146 acres of land in the Omaka Valley. These grapes are used to make medal-winning wines in the Omaka Springs Estates Limited winery where the aim -- and indeed policy -- is to make only "high quality wines at affordable prices."

Geoff and Robina were amongst the pioneers of the New Zealand olive industry and included on the land is one of New Zealand’s largest commercial olive groves consisting of approximately 3,000 trees including 23 different varieties. These trees produce high quality olives which are processed on the Estate, the result being fine extra virgin olive oil.
