At Wrights Vineyard & Winery we work from the grassroots to produce hand crafted boutique wines in an ethical and environmentally friendly way. Our grapes and wines are certified organic and grown using biodynamic techniques. In the winery additives are kept to a minimum, to show case the vintage, wines and terroir of the vineyard.

At Wrights we have two wine styles Natural Wine Co – fresh, pure and taste explosions representing new world wines. Some of the types of wines made under this range is Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Rose, Gewurztraminer and Chardonnay.

The Wrights range are premium parcels of grapes, hand selected by the winemaker. These wines are barrel aged and only made in certain years. With our top tier wines, the grapes are basket pressed with only one barrel produced, with the bottles numbered.
