All blueberries are hand picked, carefully graded and then supplied to exporters. We aim to produce the best quality of blueberries. After years of careful consideration and preparation, we decided to take it further and started fruit wine making in 2011.
The Central Waikato provides a hospitable climate all year round with warm, humid summers, cool to mild winters and moderate rainfall. These are the perfect ingredients for world class blueberries. In 2013, the winery was derived from blueberry orchard and was named Whitikahu Winery. In 2013 and 2014, for two years in a row, Whitikahu Winery blueberry wine won bronze medals in the NZ fruit wine competition.
