Our wines

Church House

Pioneering Parcels

The Matawhero Church has graced our wine label since 1975. Our Church House collection are unique parcels of wine, inspired by the pioneering spirit of our founders. They allow us to explore our adventurous side and showcase alternative varieties that we can grow and produce in our region.

Irwin Chardonnay

Our Tribute

In an exceptional vintage, where superior ripeness is achieved, we hand craft this limited release barrel fermented style of Gisborne Chardonnay. This flagship Chardonnay is a tribute to the late Bill Irwin and his son Denis, the founders of Matawhero Wines.

First Sun Rosé Magnum

First Vines to see the Sun

Gisborne is the first place in New Zealand to see the sunrise, so our vineyards are the first in the world to greet each new day. Our First Sun Rosé celebrates our region’s unique climate and terroir with our high sunshine hours and fertile soils producing this wonderful fruit-driven Rosé.
