Turanga Creek produce award winning boutique wine from their hand-tendered vineyards.

Turanga Creek Winery has been in conversion to organics for years and are now fully certified with BioGro as of March 2011, being the first vineyard in the Auckland Wine Region to do this.  It has been a fascinating journey with many trials and tribulations.  We are still young, still learning and forever growing.  The last year has seen many changes, the planting of vegetable gardens and orchard block, growing bio-dynamic preparations and learning how to implement them.  We've built our cow pat pit, so we're on our way!

Biodynamics is an organic approach where the farm is viewed as a living whole; each farm activity affects the others. Organic practices include crop rotation, recycling through composts and liquid manures.  Biodynamics leads to a natural reduction of pests and diseases in plants and animals, and an increase in the nutritive and health giving value of the grapes.

The quality of Turanga Creek’s wine has been recognised by winning some prestigious awards.  Most recently the 2008 Pinot Gris won a Gold Medal at the 2009 Guangdong International Wines & Spirits Competition.
