My name is Louis Vavasour, and my family have been growing and making wine in the Awatere Valley of Marlborough since the late 1880s.

I am proud to introduce the Awatere River Wine Company, a collection of premium quality wines from our small appellation in our world-famous wine growing region, the Awatere Valley of Marlborough.

Awatere River wines have been made using low yield, high quality techniques to create a worthy partner for fine food.

I hope you enjoy learning more about our wines and I offer you a toast to begin the journey,


To all that is good in life
