Stonyridge Vineyard was conceived and operated with the sole intention of making world-class Bordeaux-style red wine. The vineyard site was chosen specifically to produce this style of wine. The gentle north-facing slopes of the vineyard are sheltered from the cold south-westerly winds by the ridge which gives the vineyard its name.

The grapes are hand-picked and immediately taken to the winery, where they are crushed, de-stemmed, and pumped into stainless-steel fermentation tanks. A warm fermentation is followed by a two-week maceration before being basket-pressed. Malolactic fermentation is completed in barrel in the warmed chai (barrel cellar). The wine is 100% oak-aged in French and American barriques for over a year, racked regularly, rarely fined, and never filtered. It is located on Waiheke Island, a luxurious 35-minute ferry cruise from downtown Auckland, New Zealand.
