After some wrangling we have created the Spade Oak Wines facebook page. It comes with a Shop Now button to take you straight to the website and contains a few of the things that take our fancy in our day to day lives on the vineyard and when selling wine. The Blog on this website also gives an insight into where and what we are. As I realise with some degree of embarrassment the last post was the begining of 2015, it will be updated more often!
The harvest is over for another year and the grapes are in the winery waiting for Steve to work his magic. The Cellar door is currently open by appointment as we head into the autumn. Being truly "boutique" we have a small tasting room on our working vineyard. We offer a taste of excellent wines in fine glassware with the chance to sit in the shade of the cork oak trees in summer. We do not serve food but can direct you to those close by who do.
After over 20 years as head winemaker at one of New Zealand's biggest companies, Steve Voysey started his own label in 2007 with only one thing in mind... to make the best wine he could, every time. Grown on the family estate on the flats of Gisborne’s sun-washed central valley, these wines, from the flagship Spade Oak Vigneron through Heart of Gold to the V Series, capture the soils, sunshine and passion of Gisborne’s central valley region, in a mixture of exciting varieties and styles.
