Wrights Wines

When a dream becomes a reality

A family business built on hard work and kiwi ingenuity

Geoff Wright left Auckland in 1999 with a dream to one day own his own organic vineyard and winery in Gisborne. Driven by the same pioneering spirit as his Croatian Great Grand Father (Stanko Jurakovich) and Stanko’s Brother in Law (Martin Lovich). This dream is now a reality.

Geoff and Nicola Wright, along with their family of five young boys, own and operate 3 vineyards, a winery and Café. It is a business built on hard work and kiwi ingenuity.

In 2000, Wrights Vineyard and Winery released its first wines – Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer and Methode Traditionnelle. These remain our flagship wines. We also produce high quality Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc.

Our Wrights range is crafted  applying old world winemaking techniques.  Working to ensure interesting wines, using oak, skin contact maceration and blending. Our Natural Wine Co range are pure, fruit driven commercial styles, using wild ferments. All our wines are low allergen – we do not use animal based ingredients or fining.  Preservative levels are kept to a minimum.

On our vineyards we encourage bio-diversity, we have implemented several initiatives in this area.  Setting up native gardens, ponds for wild life, practising biodynamics, composting and recycling. We also have 500 olive trees on our three vineyards and produce a small amount of divine olive oil.
