- Established 1992 -
In 1992 Unison began to grow from the harsh dry river stone soils of the Gimblett Gravels. A small family owned property was planted with the vision of a low yield from densely planted vines that mirrored premium European producers.
Unisons first owners started with bare land. The European style of planting many vines in narrow rows ensured a handcrafted vision for the future. Unison, now in its second ownership remains a family owned winery and continues today as a small yield handcrafted property.
- Our Brand -
Once the former path of the Ngaruroro River, the Gimblett Gravels are now a special place, with alluvial type soil. All of Unisons Red & Rose wines are grown crafted & bottled onsite. After a flood in 1867 the River now takes an alternative path but its water remains the lifeblood of the region. Without water from the aquifer beneath the vines they would wilt and die on the bone dry free draining river stones.
The former river soils gives a rich minerality to the wines and the river stone terroir retains the heat of the sun and warms to a much higher temperatures than other soil types in Hawkes Bay, making it especially good for Red Varieties.
