Wine you can pour with confidence
Perfection in every sip.
Spade Oak is committed to unlocking the Gisborne NZ region’s potential, creating wines of quality from an eclectic selection of new and classic varieties. Our goal is to capture the soil, sunshine, passion, and labour of this beautiful region and put it into our wine.
Gisborne is best known for Chardonnay, and we pay tribute to the variety through our line of Spade Oak Reserve wines, which has grown to include Viognier and Syrah. But we have a few surprises too. We are proud to offer rare varietals from around the world, such as Temprañillo and Albariño from Spain, St Laurent from Austria, and a trio from the Rhône Valley and southern France – Syrah, Viognier and Marsanne. There's even Petit Manseng. All grown right here in Gisborne!
We offer the very best our region has to offer, bottled for perfection in every sip.
About Spade Oak
Sustainably Grown • Lovingly Made
Spade Oak Wines were made to be enjoyed with food and friends. On the outskirts of Gisborne, Spade Oak vineyards bask in the sunlit central valley, the heart of Gisborne wine country, on land that has produced grapes for generations. Our wines show the delicate touch of a master winemaker at work.
We do what feels good for the wine. All our wines are made with sustainably grown grapes in sustainably certified wineries and bottling facilities. We are committed to what makes sense for the wine and the land that is scientifically justified in the pursuit of making better wine. We feel deeply connected to the earth that the wines come from. We want the wines to express where they are grown, Gisborne, one of the most fertile plains on earth.
Don't just take our word for it.
Spade Oak wines have received international attention and industry recognition in the form of praise and awards. We're chuffed by all the attention, and would love to share some of the reviews, accolades and awards with you.
