The Boneline is a figurative way of describing the Waipara river. Over millions of years the river has receded revealing fossils, rocky terraces and in turn informing the location of our plantings. The land is restless with low rainfall, katabatic valley winds and amphitheatre heat traps. We craft wines with resonance from vines planted by our family partnership founded in 1989. Younger people are drawn here contributing knowledge and commitment as The Boneline evolves.
