On a gentle north-facing slope near Nelson, you’ll find Blackenbrook Vineyard, a small volume, high quality winery on a 20ha block owned by the Schwarzenbach Family. The vineyard was first planted in the spring of 2001 and the first vintage was launched in 2004. Healthy soil, strong vines and sustainability are the focus of the vineyard management. Daniel, also the winemaker, strives for minimal interference with natural processes, which has resulted in pure and genuine wines. Most of Blackenbrook’s white varieties are completely unfined and vegan.
