The Vineyard


Owners Sheryl Dennis and Richard Campbell met in Hanmer Springs in 2000. We were looking for a new direction and started to investigate the possibility of a vineyard in the Hanmer Area. We were very lucky that Kerry Hitchcock had semi retired to Hanmer Springs, Kerry has been involved with the wine industry all his life, starting as a wine maker for Cook’s and finishing as marketer for Montana. Kerry now works as a consultant for the industry and travels all over the world.

The vineyard was planted in 2004. 4 varieties of grapes were planted

  • Pinot Noir 2 Ha.
  • Chardonnay 1 Ha.
  • Riesling 1 Ha.
  • Sauvignon Blanc 1.2 Ha.

We still plan to remain a small boutique wine tourism vineyard, so have no immediate plans to to increase in size. At present our grapes once picked are transported to Waipara. We have done all our own viticultural work up until now, with lots of help from our full time employee Jason Hill.
The National and International award winning team at Southern Boundary Wines (Waipara Springs + Waipara Downs) make our wine.

The Terrain


Marble Point is the first vineyard planted in this exciting new wine region, with our grapes grown on old alluvial terraces of the Waiau River.

The History


The Marble Point quarry is fully operational today and produces pink to white marble which is used in commercial flooring and stone bench tops. Visit us today to learn more about this unique area.
