More information:
The Skeggs family were among the first people to buy and plant vineyard land in Central Otago in the mid 1990s, so were lucky enough to acquire a superb north facing site in Bannockburn. Planted in 1996, this 50 hectare site has since provided the backbone of the Akarua wines. Due to the short growing season in Central Otago, site selection is one of the key elements in making a great wine, and Akarua have a site that is among the very best. Sustainability in the vineyard and winery is integral to the Akarua ethos; water conservation, recycling, the use of lightweight bottles, fully insulated barrel rooms and energy efficient lighting in the winery, are a few of the initiatives taken by Akarua to guarantee their accredited status as a sustainable producer.
