Man O’ War

On the challenging and remote landscape of Waiheke Island in Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf you’ll find Man O’ War, a 4,500-acre family farm with over 150-acres under vine, producing world class wines.

The first vines were planted in 1993, now almost three decades later you’ll find no less than 75 vineyards across the farm.  Man O’ war have become well known for their Syrah, Chardonnay and Waiheke’s signature Bordeaux Blends. They also produce a distinctly different Sauvignon Blanc a seriously drinkable Pinot Gris and their (infamous) Rosé.

Man O’ War is steeped in history dating back to early Polynesian adventurers. The protected cove has provided safe harbour during many rough seas and the bay was named by navigators in the late 1700s.  The magnificent Kauri trees we’re noted in the early shipping journals, they made ideal masts for the naval Man O’ War warships, and thus the name Man O’ War was bestowed upon this special place.

“Man O’ War is without a doubt one of New Zealand’s greatest wineries in the making and one to watch.” – ROBERT PARKER’S “THE WINE ADVOCATE”
