Winemaking philosophy

Our winemaking philosophy

Our grapes are all grown in our own vineyards around the Waipara Valley, allowing the natural strengths of the region to be showcased within each wine. Once the grapes are harvested we use traditional winemaking techniques to produce wines of purity and complexity.  It’s the melding of these two qualities; New Zealand grown grapes handcrafted with traditional European techniques,  that makes Bishops Head's ripe and full bodied award winning wines unique.
