A worldwide search for an area with perfect conditions for viticulture brought Kai Schubert and Marion Deimling to the Wairarapa region near Wellington in New Zealand. Here in Martinborough they found ideal conditions to plant and grow their true passion - Pinot Noir.
Schubert’s philosophy is to craft wines of uncompromising quality that would stand out alongside the finest in the world. Fourteen hectares of vines are closely planted in the traditional, European style and the unique cool climate and long dry autumns help to produce low yields.
Predominantly focused on Pinot Noir, Schubert has expanded plantings to include Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Franc. Small quantities of white grapes are also planted, including Sauvignon Blanc and Müller-Thurgau used to add aromas to the Tribianco blend and a classic late harvest wine.
The estate concentrates on ecologically and environmentally friendly organic viticulture. Respect for the terroir results in wines of outstanding character, complexity, balance and grace.
