Our Story

A family’s passion for the land, a provenance nurtured through three generations, a curiosity to create and produce the very best wines from the hands of chosen skilled vintners. From the unique soils of New Zealand’s finest grape growing regions – this is the signature of Lake Road Wines.

Since the 1970’s Lake Road Wines sought to unshackle the constraints imposed by large wine producers and thus earned an enviable reputation for customizing the art form between a region’s best grape growing practice, the dedicated winemaker and the discerning wine lover. The result is our range of distinctive, award winning wines like our cornerstone, Marlborough’s famous Sauvignon Blanc, and Gisborne’s Chardonnay complemented by other wines such as our range of Pinots and full flavoured aromatics. We proudly export to Australia, China, Singapore, United States, and the United Kingdom. There have been many challenges over the decades to test a pioneering spirit, from local weather, to global economic highs and lows. Each has strengthened our commitment and resolve to stay true to our vision.

Lake Road Wines’ uncompromising quality, contemporary and environmentally aware viticulture practices and outstanding value go hand in hand with our commitment to exceed all expectations in an exciting and constantly evolving and contemporary international wine market. Experience earned over time blended with a youthful enthusiasm allows us to innovate and adapt to change, enabling us to deliver exceptional New World wines.



Lake Road Wines is a medium sized family winemaking business that has been operating in New Zealand for more than 40 years.
