Ra Nui meaning “lots of sun” was formed in 2002 by Steven Hotchin with the aim of realising the true potential of the Marlborough region.
There are three company vineyards, each with a unique terroir. The Summer Valley vineyard and Cob Cottage vineyard are situated at the foot of the Wither Hills in a gently sloping valley. the more recently planted Delta vineyard, is centrally located in the middle of the Wairau Valley and is one of the highest elevation vineyards in Marlborough.
A non-interventionist strategy is employed to maintain fruit integrity: grapes are hand-picked and bunches whole pressed, ensuring fine texture and maximum flavour in all Ra Nui wines.
