The Gladstone district in the Wairarapa, New Zealand is a fast growing wine area, as winemakers realise the potential of soil and climate that produce low yielding rich concentrated grapes. Gladstone Vineyard is a family business with an international reputation for distinctive, high quality wines of finesse and complexity.
Owner-operated by Christine and David Kernohan since 1996, Gladstone Vineyard has an established reputation as a quality boutique wine producer, making award-winning wines of finesse and complexity. They established the vineyard on the old riverbed of the Ruamahanga River at Gladstone, Christine and David are proud to have one of New Zealand’s most beautiful vineyards.
At Gladstone Vineyard they are committed to creating world class wines that express the exceptional characteristics of New Zealand’s Gladstone region. Christine believes that the most important part of winemaking occurs in the vineyard. Grapes are managed with great care, ensuring the best possible fruit is brought to the winery at harvest.
Their focus is to make premium wine, harnessing the unique soil characteristics of the free draining old river terraces and adopting bio dynamic principles and sustainable practices to maintain soil and vine health. The resulting wines express the season, the soil and the area – the terroir, with an aromatic, fresh and varietal style.
