The Marlborough region, at the north eastern corner of the South Island of New
Zealand is recognised throughout the world as the source of stunning cool climate
wines. With vineyards established in 1996, The Crossings is one of a small group of
pioneering Awatere Valley winegrowers.
Recognised as a distinct sub-region of Marlborough, the Awatere Valley's low vigour
soils and dry climate produce grapes with intense fruit flavours, infused with a
delightful minerality. We take our name from the location of the ford used by early
settlers to cross the fast flowing Awatere River. The river forms a pristine southern

abiding commitment to sustainability, which infuses every aspect of our craft.
