Founder and owner of te Pā, Haysley MacDonald traces his ancestry back to the early Maori settlers. For over 800 years his family have journeyed along Pā Road. In 2003 Haysley and his family started a new adventure, converting their dairy and crop farm into vineyards and in 2011 te Pā was born.
With the river to the south and the sea on their eastern boundary at Cloudy Bay, these two bodies of water ensure continuous airflow throughout the growing season, moderating temperatures and maintaining healthy vines.
The Lower Wairau Valley and Awatere Valley where the grapes for Pā Road, Pinot Gris are grown encompass a rich variation of soil types, from rich, fertile loams overlaying alluvial deposits to the sandy, silty soils of their seaside blocks. It’s a treasure trove for their winemaker, producing fruit of varying characteristics that come together in this distinctive wine.
