' Quintessential - Rongopai


Marlborough, New Zealand

Founded in 1932 in the picturesque town of Te Kauwhata (on the site of New Zealand’s first viticultural research station which was built in 1902), Rongopai’s grapes were prized for unique characteristics that are now identified as quintessentially New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. In 2007, the winery moved to Marlborough to bring winemaking closer to its 100% certified sustainable vineyard estates.

The name “Rongopai” means “good taste and good feeling” and features on its labels the uncurling Koru design as a symbol of creation and growth, perpetually growing yet always curving back towards its source.

Rongopai proudly looks both forwards and backwards; to the next vintage of sustainably produced, fresh and vibrant New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir wines, and to the expertise gained over a 90-year history as one of New Zealand’s oldest wine brands.
