A Little Italian in Matakana

Matavino is a small vineyard nestled on northern slopes that epitomises the diversity of the famous Matakana Wine Region by growing the ancient Italian red grape varieties of Dolcetto, Barbera, and Nebbiolo, plus Chardonnay and Viognier.

Our vision is to produce a variety of wines to match the local food and produce. The vines are hand nurtured and from 2017 the wine is fermented in the old traditional way by using Amphora clay vessels. Matavino vineyard was initially planted in September 2006 and the first wines went on sale in October 2010.

The Matavino Cellar Door/Winery is open 11am to 5pm Saturdays & Sundays from Labour Weekend(end of October) until Easter, and possibly other times by phoning 021 621124 first.

Matavino wines are best matched with food but also taste great out on the deck or around the BBQ with family and friends. After all, that’s what Italian life is all about – great food, great wine, great company!
