The secret to great, world quality New Zealand artisan wines is a perfect vineyard site and a dedicated French-trained master winemaker. Frenchmans Hill Estate has both. We are located on Waiheke Island perched above Putiki Estuary on the Te Whau Peninsula at the western head of Onetangi Valley where we have been producing high quality wines since 2010. The area provides the perfect combination of maritime climate, pedigree wine selections, soil and passionate people to create some of New Zealand's most profound wines. It is very similar climatically to the Medoc Region of France.
