Welcome to Wishart Estate Winery

Wishart Estate was established by Wishart descendants, who include 4th generation Hawke's Bay grape growers. We are New Zealand owned and committed to producing richly flavoured wines to savour.
Sorry but our online shop is no longer operating. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Our Premium Wines have been designed to showcase the varieties that perform best not only in Hawkes Bay but also in the micro climate of Bay View. We produce three premium wines when the quality of fruit is at its best and the winemaking has produced a wine worthy of our black labels.
2005 Legend: . 4 stars Winestate 2009. A blended red of Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Syrah.
2005 Alluvion: 4 stars Gourmet Traveller 2008. Syrah.
2005 Reserve Chardonnay. Recommended by Winestate 2009.

The Te Puriri brand has been designed to compliment our premium range of wines. Named after the over 100 year old Puriri tree that stands sentinel over the Bay View vineyard, these are quality wines for everyday occasions. They are full and fruity, bold and flavoursome.
Te Puriri range includes:
Chardonnays (both oaked and un-oaked), Rose, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Merlot/Cabernet Franc/Malbec blend, and Syrah.

We are proud to produce a range of quality wines. All our fruit is sourced from the premium wine growing district of Hawkes Bay, New Zealand.
Our winery, built 1998, is in Hawkes Bay, just north of Napier on State Highway 2 close by the Pacific Ocean.
Prior to the 1931 Napier earthquake, the alluvial gravels of our adjacent vineyard formed the bed of the Esk River. These alluvial gravels now provide an excellent home for our 32 acres of vineyard. Our Bay View vineyard produces consistent high quality due to its proximity to the coast. Cool summer nights and a long ripening season provide excellent growing conditions for our many varieties. While most wines are fermented or aged in barriques, we also produce wines with distinct fruit character.
Dessert Wines: Occasionally, when the conditions are right in the vineyard, we produce Dessert wines. Currently we stock a delightful Dessert Merlot.
