Matavino is a small family owned and operated vineyard, nestled on gentle north-facing slopes in the famous Matakana Wine region. My vision is to grow a variety of quality wines to match the local food and produce. Matavino epitomises the diversity of the Matakana Wine region, by growing the ancient red grape varieties Dolcetto, Barbera, and Nebbiolo from the Piedmont region in Italy, as well as the French white grape varieties Viognier and Chardonnay. The vines are hand nurtured using sustainable practices.
I initially planted the Matavino vineyard in September 2006 and the first wines went on sale in October 2010. Matavino has a Cellar Door for tasting and wine sales, which is open most Saturdays and Sundays from the end of October until Easter.
Matavino wines are best matched with food but also taste great out on the deck or around the BBQ with friends and family. After all, that’s what Italian life is all about - great Food, great Wine, great Company!
