The Crater Rim Ltd is a family-owned boutique winemaking company situated in the rolling hills of Waipara, in the South Island of New Zealand. They grow, make and market limited quantities of terroir-specific wines produced from their own two vineyards in Waipara, and Omihi and contracted sites in Central Otago and Banks Peninsula. These have been carefully selected for their particular mix of varietal, topography, soil and microclimate – creating high quality, site-specific wines of individual character and drinkability, styled on the negociant houses of Burgundy and the Rhone Valley in France. There, the careful selection of small parcels of estate and non-estate fruit for winemaking is a long held tradition. They manage their own vineyards and work closely with each grower to ensure that vines are cropped low and managed sustainably, guaranteeing the best quality fruit possible from each vineyard site.
