The vineyards are all in the famed Marlborough region of New Zealand.
Some key vineyards are located in the southern valleys, but Marisco's two major vineyards are deeper inland – in the more challenging and rewarding Waihopai Valley. There, the typical fruit intensity of Marlborough wine is even more pronounced.
Waihopai River Vineyard lies on the flats on the right bank of the Waihopai River, at the mouth of the Waihopai Valley. By far the most substantial part of the 260ha vineyard is planted in Sauvignon Blanc, along with Pinot Gris and a few small blocks of Chardonnay and Viognier.
What made the Waihopai River Vineyard such a great place to start Marisco Vineyards is the exceptional diversity it have across the one site. It consists of three terraces, formed by glacial movement over thousands of years.
