Charting a New Course

Sailing the Pacific Ocean, our founders, Sue and Greg White set a new course for the Marlborough Sounds of New Zealand. It was here, amidst the stunning natural scenery in Blenheim, that they ended up dropping anchor and establishing Whitehaven Winery in 1994.

Dedication to Quality without Compromise

Today, our Winemaker Sam Smail selects grapes from the world-renowned Marlborough region to craft brilliant, distinctive and critically acclaimed Sauvignon Blanc wines. Sam and his team believe in a philosophy that centers on the pursuit of quality without compromise every step of the way – from the vineyard to the bottle. A proud display of this commitment, every bottle of our wine proudly bears the anchor insignia on its sophisticated white label.

Although we have grown well beyond our original expectations, we remain a boutique winery that is focused on producing elegant wines that showcase the Marlborough region.
