Wrights Vineyard & WInery was established in 2000 by Geoff Wright, in 2005 Nicola Wright joined the 'Wright Team.' We see it important to continue with our philosophy and develop and adopt ethical practices.
The future for Wrights Vineyard and Winery is definitely going to be exciting, challenging and fulfilling. We intend to continue producing wine, however at the same time develop a natural farm producing a wide range of products. The natural farm will adopt the approach of minimal human intervention to promote the co-existence of organisms and encourage nature's equilibrium.
At present you can visit our Winery and Vineyard by appointment during Winter and during Summer we are open 7 Days a week. We enjoy meeting new people and showcasing our wines. Feel free to contact us next time you are in Gisborne.
There will be no use of artificial fertilisers, nasty fungicides, herbicides and insecticides.
At present all our own organically certified grapes go into our wines. In 2009 we harvested our first grapes from our Terrace Vineyard.
We have now completed our straw bale home and moved in just prior to the 2012 Christmas. We utilise environmentally friendly features such as composting toilet, wet back, solar shower and natural gases.
We still have plenty of dreams and aspirations and a lot of hard work to do to get where we would ideally like to be. If we don't reach our dream, this is all right, as long as we live our life's honestly and are true to ourselves, family, friends and not intentionally hurting anyone or anything in the process.
