A Little About Rapaura Springs

Here at Tiwi we chose this winery due to their philosophy of working and enhancing the environment around them through sustainability along with the aromas and essences experienced while drinking these wines.

The journey of our Rapaura Springs wines begins far from our vineyards, at a point where the earth claims a share of the Wairau River. After a six month journey through a rocky aquifer, the water is released to a spring that weaves through our vineyard. This spring, depicted on our label, provides both the crystal clear, pure, water for our vines and guides the philosophy behind our family winery.

We grow and source grapes from across all of Marlborough’s brilliant sub-regions. We let New Zealand’s land, climate and water do the hard work, then handcraft superb wines at our state of the art winery.

We leave the vineyards to tell their own story, with just a little nudge in the right direction from our experienced viticulture and winemaking teams.

This approach allows us the opportunity to capture and deliver all of the wonderful flavours Marlborough has to offer. The result is a series of exceptional wines with distinct flavours that reflect the iconic regions they come from.
