Te Whare Ra (‘The House in the Sun’ in Maori) is a family run winery located in the Marlborough sub-region of Renwick. Anna & Jason Flowerday bought the property in 2003, wanting somewhere that was small enough for the two of them, but special enough to allow them to really make their mark. The 11 hectares is planted with seven different varietals, with the oldest plantings dating back to 1979.
