Selaks winery is set in the gentle rolling hills northwest of Auckland
city, just a few kilometers from the unspoiled West Coast of New Zealand's North Island. In this idyllic marine climate, using the latest European technology, Selaks combine the traditions of three generations of winemaking with "new world" efficiency, to produce premium varietal wines, acknowledged as among the best in the country. Selaks only use natural products in winemaking.
Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc grapes are grown mainly in the shingly valley which slopes from the South Islands Marlborough hills down to Cloudy Bay. Other grapes like Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon reach fulsome ripeness in the fertile Hawkes Bay on the east coast of the North Island.
