The wines grown on our limestone hills and made in the boutique winery at Pukeora Estate are beginning to show their true colours. Vine age (first planted 2000) and refined wine making techniques are producing some interesting and unique wines.
The wines of the first vintage were produced under the San Hill label in 2004 by our previous winemaker Michael Bennett. Subsequent vintages have been made by Max Annabell.
From the 2009 vintage the wines have been released using the "Pukeora" name. The newer look stables two brands, the premium label in a limestone beigey colour called Ruahine Range and the 2nd label in a buff/pale yellow colour known as the Estate Range.
Our wines can be purchased on-line or we welcome personal tastings and sales at our cellar door.
