About Te Kairanga:

Though small by world standards, Te Kairanga is one of Martinborough’s largest wine producers, and a leader in striving for quality.

Every year, sunshine and the seasons vary in the vineyard. Each year, nature works a different magic in the grapes. As a small winery Te Kairanga is free to express these differences in the subtle variations of the wines from vintage to vintage.

Pronounced “tee kigh-runger”, Te Kairanga is a traditional Maori place name (Maori are Polynesian people), meaning “where the soil is good and the food is plentiful”. However you pronounce it, it means - great wine!
