Astrolabe Wines | Marlborough

Astrolabe Wines Vineyard

Astrolabe Wines was established in 1996 and is named after the ship that in 1827 charted and explored the Marlborough Coast of New Zealand. It is the personal project for winemaker Simon Waghorn and his wife Jane, and marks the culmination of a winemaking career for Simon that began back in 1982.

Simon and Jane have developed a range of distinctive wines that express the purity and intensity of fruit flavours naturally afforded by the climate and soils of the Marlborough wine region. Astrolabe own 10 hectares and work with a number of growers scattered all over Marlborough, from Awatere Valley to the Kekerengu Coast and the Wairau Valley. Each site is chosen for the distinctive flavour it produces and the growers who work with Simon and Jane understand the rhythms of the land and know how to grow grapes that express the terroir.

Astrolabe also has a second label called Durvillea whose wines are made in a classic Marlborough style using parcels of fruit from the Astrolabe vineyards.
