Morepork Vineyard was planted by Phil and Rosemary Minehan on their property near Kerikeri in Northland. The vineyard comprises two very small single variety blocks on an early ripening, sheltered, sunny north facing site.
It takes its name from the resident Morepork; the vineyard dog is Ruru a speedy golden cocker spaniel who loves his pest control duty.
Our goal has always been to produce quality wine for the local market. Morepork Pinot Gris has received awards every year since first vintage in 2009 with the best results in 2013 (Gold and 2 Silvers), 2014 (Silver) and 2015 (Gold and 3 Silvers)
