PIONEERING EXPRESSION OF AWATERE VALLEY TERROIR
Vavasour is the founding winery of Marlborough’s Awatere Valley, with 196 acres of estate vineyards that produce acclaimed, limited production Sauvignon Blancs. In 1986 Vavasour was the first to plant vines in the Awatere Valley: a stunning land of rolling river benches and Tapuae-O-Uenuku, the 10,000 foot peak that frames and protects the region.
Sourcing from the best parcels and the oldest vines in the valley and employing sustainable winemaking practices, Vavasour wines are a true expression of the valley’s climate and ancient soils. The wines are unmistakably Awatere: perfumed, textural, palate-led Sauvignon Blanc with creamy, rounded acidity and minerality.
