At the very heart of this wine is the Bostock’s love of Hawke’s Bay and one special piece of land at their home at Ngatarawa. Long owned by Johnny and his wife, the late Vicki Bostock, it was Vicki’s passion that provided the inspiration for this wine.
Our vineyard is family-owned, small and boutique. Only the best grapes are selected and hand-picked to make our premium Bostock Wines. We have 50 hectares of prime viticulture land within the Bridge Pa Triangle containing the oldest soils on the Heretaunga Plains. This land is currently in conversion to being certified organic. Hawke’s Bay is regarded as the premier growing region of New Zealand celebrated for its diversity of soils and warm and sunny maritime climate. Our experience of working with many of the 30 different soil types that make up the patchwork of the Heretaunga Plains cemented our appreciation of the pedigree of the Bridge Pa district for world-class winegrowing.
We manage many individual parcels of vines over a mixture of clonal and rootstock combinations to evaluate and evolve the full potential of our site. During the season each vine is individually hand tended on over 10 occasions and this patiently formed human connection with the vines translates into the unique expression within each vintage of Bostock Wine. Our experience has taught us that the healthiest and safest environment for all living things will bring the greatest enjoyment and we firmly believe that organic growing practices is the logical way to achieve harmony with nature.
