Vinoptima is Latin for best wines and a desire to create truly exceptional Gewurztraminer wine has governed every aspect of the Vineyard’s development.
Vinoptima Estate is a fully integrated, self-contained vineyard and wine producing business dedicated to the production of a single commercial wine from grapes grown entirely on the Estate. Vinoptima is a hand-crafted wine.
The Vinoptima Estate vineyard comprises 9.7 ha divided into two blocks of roughly equal size. The original South Block was planted in 2000 and the new North Block was planted in 2007. The Vinoptima Estate vineyard is planted in five different clones of Gewurztraminer that Nick Nobilo has selected during his more than 25 years’ work with this variety.
Vinoptima Estate is situated on the East Coast of New Zealand’s North Island, 26 kilometres inland from Gisborne on Ngakoroa Road in Ormond, adjacent to the main Gisborne to Opotiki Road.
The company’s operations include grape growing, wine making, cellaring, bottling, marketing and selling ultra-premium Gewurztraminer under the Vinoptima label.
Tuaropaki Trust provides significant resources to cultivate the success of Vinoptima, a new entrant to the Chinese wine sector. Foundation work continues to build credible channels to this market and establish the brand with the goal to build a sustainable and successful product and brand.
