“As kaitiaki, guardians of our lands, we have spent a lot of time on our vineyards, understanding and nurturing each of the blocks. We’re using this intimate knowledge of the land to create premium single vineyard wines,” said Bruce Taylor, chief winemaker at Tohu Wines. Tohu Whenua, a new series of single-vineyard wines, represents the provenance etched into Tohu’s practices. Each variety within the Whenua series carries the name of the vineyard it originates from—either Whenua Awa, in Upper Awatere Valley, Marlborough or Whenua Matua in upper Moutere, Nelson. Tohu Whenua not only showcases the wines of the region but shares Tohu’s story, values and rich history. Eight wines are available in the series, ranging from Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling Albariño and Pinot Blanc. For more information, please visit
