Our View East vineyard is over the eastern end of Waiheke Island near Orapiu. It was lovingly planted in the early 2000’s in 100% Syrah grapes by Bridgit and Daren Day. They worked hard and produced some of the best examples of Waiheke Syrah for many years. Sadly in 2013 Daren passed away.
After spending time selling the grapes to other wine producers on the island in 2015 Bridgit decided she wanted a more long term solution for her pride and joy. This coincided with a time when we were looking for more vineyards and so we became involved in July.
The vineyard has approximately 1.5 hectares of vines and our desire is to carry on the good work of the Day’s and produce the best wine possible each vintage.
