Our Mission

Canterbury House produces Estate grown premium table wines and sparkling wines.  The goals of the company are to provide superior products for the domestic and overseas markets and to achieve a significant level of export sales.

Company Profile

Canterbury House is a relatively new company which planted its first vineyards in 1994 and produced its first wines from the April, 1997 harvest.  Vineyard and winery expansion will progress over the next several years to a planned annual production of 125,000 cases.  Efficient vineyard and winery design coupled with the romance of wine production provides enhanced value to our customers. 

Industry Recognition

As of June  2000, Canterbury House wines have garnered 32 medals in national and international wine competitions.  The 1998 Sauvignon blanc won a gold medal at the prestigious Royal Easter Show in Auckland, New Zealand in March, 1999 and additionally was awarded the Trophy Wine as the best of 1998 Sauvignon blanc wines produced in New Zealand.

President's Message

We take pride in producing fine wines and sparkling wines and invite you to enjoy our efforts.  The romance of wine and the blending of scientific principles to vineyard and winery operations have produced a class of wines characteristic of the natural grapes without the intrusion of flavours and aromas introduced by the winemaking process.
