Ataahua in Maori, translates to a beautiful, picturesque, place of beauty.
Waipara Valley, North Canterbury is in the northern region of Canterbury and is the home of Ataahua. The vineyard covers 8.24 hectares in central Waipara, and is planted on the Glasnevin soils on the Weka River terraces.
The winery and vineyard is a family affair.
The Henderson-Grants, along with their lively and very individual children, all work on maintaining the family vineyard. You’ll often see the whānau working in the vineyard, keeping the characteristics of the vineyard thriving alongside a talented team.
Our promise to New Zealand
Ataahua are certified sustainable and focussed on producing delicious wine that are made in a sustainable way both in the vineyard and winery.
We’re focussed on taking great care of the land and environment for future generations.
Going forward we’re aiming to become Carbon Neutral and plan for planting native plant species in strategic places to encourage regenerative growth of native flora and fauna. We’re aware that ensuring a future for the wine industry in New Zealand relies on it being financially viable and sustainable.
