We honour tradition, but we do things our way and have done for over 30 years. We’re a relaxed bunch who do jeans not suits, mates not colleagues and morning tea over meetings, but we take making wine seriously. So much so that we do the lot, from growing grapes to making and bottling our 100% certified sustainable wine. And that’s just how we like it.

We believe that when it comes to enjoying wine, you might share some of the same values as us. Our philosophy is based on authenticity, enjoyment and sustainability. Whether it’s about us as people or the wines that we make, these three words are our guiding light.

Our range of wines offer an authentic representation of each grape variety and where it is grown. They are consistent in style with great aromas, expressive flavours and a lingering texture. Add to this our carbon zero and environmental management certifications, and you can be confident to share them with family and friends to enjoy on any occasion.

We’re open from 10am until 4.30pm, seven days a week and would love to show you our wines. No need to book, just pop in and see us on Alabama Road just past the Mitre Ten – the closest winery to Blenheim’s town centre. Please note we are closed on public holidays and weekends from Easter until Labour Day.

Discover Lawson’s Dry Hills

We had no idea what to expect but we chose to go to Lawson's Dry Hills because it was the closest vineyard to our accommodation. Nigel was very friendly and accommodating to us two complete newbies and we tasted some delicious wine. We sat down for a glass outside and enjoyed the view. Would highly recommend to anyone who is able to go! -Sabina Finnigan
