The Auckland farm to palate expression


The vineyard is located on a very beautiful north facing slope, framed by bush-clad hills in all directions. We are accredited sustainable
and moving toward organic status. It is non-irrgated, which is considered essential for production of high quality wine grapes in many
of the iconic winegrowing regions of Europe.

The operation today produces around 4000 cases per year and remains in the Ransom family. Owners are Robin and Marion Ransom, son
Gabriel is the Winemaker, brother in law Rob Pinder is Vineyard Manager, and son Julian has created the art which graces the Ransom
wine labels and the walls of the cellar door and winebar.

As a single-vineyard operation our wines are the singular expression of our land and climate, and celebrate the variations from one
vintage to another, which makes each wine totally unique. This avoiding the maufactured uniformity which characterises much of the
wine available today.
