COVID-19

Order through Wines page on our website.

LIME ROCK is a stunning vineyard situated on limestone hills in sunny Central Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand specialising in Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Merlot and Grüner Veltliner. Elegance, balance and length are a feature of our wines.  The limestone contributing to the 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.  

Cellar Door is open 7-8th March and 14-15th March 11am to 4pm and then its Vintage 2020! Pinot Noir flavours and colour exceptional this year.

What makes Lime Rock different

  • North facing limestone slopes
  • Ecologically based management
  • Meticulously hand picked
  • Single vineyard-many aspects


"Who said they couldn't make pinot noir in Hawke's Bay? This one is in the hills, a few minutes from Waipawa. An abundant and youthful wine, it's one of two made by Rosie Butler and it's full of surprises and flavour. Worth making acquaintance with both."
