OUR WINE IS YOURS TO ENJOY
The ethos behind Ataahua Wines is to offer you something that is far from pretentious, but represents the passion and effort put into the craft of producing fine wine.
We have set out to ensure our wines mirror the stunning surroundings they come from, the alluring natural beauty of Waipara Valley, and the agricultural traditions and familiarity of North Canterbury. Each sip paints a picture of our landscapes – rich soil, big skies and the quintessential seasons that give our grapes their essence.

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.
