LIME ROCK is a stunning vineyard situated on limestone hills in sunny Central Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand, 40km SW of Hastings and 6km west of Waipawa (turn onto Tikokino Road opposite BP).

We specialise in Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Merlot and Grüner Veltliner. Elegance, balance and length are a feature of our wines.  We believe the limestone contributes sought-after mineral characters.

Our ecological philosophy (vit-ecology), combined with over 30 years of wine industry experience, provides a solid basis for producing wines that express the flavour of our land.
