North of Nelson, lie the fertile Motueka Valley, home of Lesley and Daniel Jackson.
Here you'll find Redoubt Hill Vineyard set in a stunning location in the middle of the Nelson and Tasman Bay area of New Zealand.
With previous experience in the hospitality trade and Lesley's background as a viticulturist we welcome you to our tasting room where you can enjoy sampling our quality wines.
Growing grapes in the Motueka Valley
With more than 2400 hours of sunshine annually, average summer temperatures of 21 degrees Celsius and an average rainfall of 970mm the region is ideal for aromatic varieties.
Redoubt Hill is planted on a steep north/west slope which benefits from the southerly winds.
Great care was taken to choose clones and root stock which would benefit from the rare Separation Point granite soil in which they are grown, at present we are the only vineyard in the country growing on this soil...
No irrigation has ever been used on the vineyard.
Close planting is used to intensify the flavours in the fruit, viticultural fine tuning influences the quality of fruit produced.
With this in mind; Redoubt Hill is firstly about quality and not quantity.
