Wairau River first established in 1978 by Phil & Chris Rose produces wines exclusively sourced from family estate vineyards in the Marlborough region. The regions susceptibility to seismic activity prompted the Rose family to employ the Onguard tank system.
Hand tended in small batches from vine to bottle, low crops and ultra-ripe fruit are utilised to produce premium wine that has become renowned for its intense fruit characteristics and classical elegance.
With five estate vineyards of approximately 500 acres, Wairau River Wines maintains a total commitment to quality by carefully managing these sites to keep yields low and quality high. The intensive nature of producing quality wines meant that Onguard was the perfect solution to protect Wairau River Wines biggest asset, their wine.
