Te Horo Vineyards

Te Horo Vineyards is happily influenced by proximity to the Tasman sea - about 3km North West as the Kereru (NZ native Pigeon) flies. They experience plenty of good winter frost chill to rest and renew the grapes. At the critical flowering and ripening/harvest times the rainfall is generally insignificant.

It has been said that "The fruit wines of Parsonage Hill have done more than any other in New Zealand to change the image of fruit wines."

"Well who would have thought it? Rumble not just reviewing fruit wines but recommending them. Indeed I admit to a former prejudice about fruit wines, but consider my feelings were justified in the past. All too often they were pale and insipid in colour, light and insipid on the nose and thin and insipid on the palate. But Parsonage Hill changed that scenario."
Peter Rumble as written in the Evening Post
