Stonyridge Vineyard

Organic practices

Stonyridge Vineyard is a world-renowed Cabernet-blend winegrower, located on the beautiful island of Waiheke, near Auckland, New Zealand. Stonyridge was conceived and operated with the sole intention of making world-class Bordeaux-style red wine.

They are dedicated to producing the finest Cabernet blends in the world (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot), combining traditional winemaking with meticulous organic viticulture.

Insecticides have never been used at Stonyridge and herbicides have not been used since 1988 when they purchased their first German tractor-mounted undervine weeder. Their vine-disease-protection program is limited to non-systemic fungicides (copper and sulfur). They are organic growers, but because of an allergy to bureaucracy they refuse to be certified by an agency.
