Stoneleigh wines owe much to their unique terroir. For thousands of years, the Wairau River ran through what are now our vineyards, depositing stones of all sizes. Today, our vines are planted among these sunstones, as they capture heat throughout the day and release it on to the vines, helping develop rich, intense flavours in the grapes. Started by nature and finished by the talents of the Stoneleigh winemakers, our philosophy of minimal intervention in the winery ensures that the vibrant flavours of Stoneleigh are captured in each and every bottle. Our wines are all vegan certified* and sustainability produced1.

The ultimate expression of our minimal-intervention winemaking philosophy, Stoneleigh Wild Valley is crafted using fruit picked at optimum ripeness and is wild fermented by naturally-occurring micro-flora.
Latitude wines are crafted from grapes sourced from the ‘Golden Mile’; a strip of land covered with ancient sunstones and highly regarded for its outstanding grape-growing conditions. The resulting wines are aromatically lifted and riper in spectrum, a result of higher concentration of the stones in the area and the remarkable impact this has on the vines.
Stoneleigh Lighter wines take advantage of the naturally early ripening characteristics of the Rapaura sub-region appellation. By harvesting the grapes early, these wines are 25% lower in alcohol than Stoneleigh range wines of the same vintage, whilst delivering the full, vibrant flavours expected of our wines.
Single-vineyard wines that take the best elements of Stoneleigh and add in a number of extra dimensions – resulting in refined, super premium quality wines with more complexity to deliver the most intense expression of Marlborough. This range takes its name from the distinctive stony soils on which the Stoneleigh vineyards are located.
Our organic wines are grown in living soil and are a true reflection of the grape. Clean and vibrant, a pure expression of New Zealand nature.
