A History of Horticulture
Over the past 38 years, our passion for cultivation has driven us to innovate, collaborate with local growers and help to create jobs in Northland.
Alongside our vineyard, we are also growing lemons, kiwifruit, avocados and melons.
Next to the vineyard, there is a waterfall and wetland area, which is being transformed into a sanctuary of native bush and boardwalks. Covenants are in place to ensure that everyone can enjoy this patch for generations to come. Visitors are welcome to take a walk through our regenerative forest (roughly 30 minutes round trip).
Our grapes are grown sustainably and our vineyard is accredited by Sustainable Wines of New Zealand.
The Origins of Kainui
Our brand takes its name from the Central North Island family farm where Helen was raised. Quite fittingly, Kainui is a Māori word that translates to ‘plenty of food’.
