During this time there have been huge changes in the industry, from the growing of bulk grapes to the quality wines that are now world class.

The vineyard is 17 hectares in the Central Valley Region of Gisborne District, growing mainly Chardonnay grapes, along with smaller plantings of Gewurztraminer, Viognier and Pinot Gris. The family also owns an interest in a nearby vineyard of 15 hectares, from where they source the fruit for their Merlot.

The name Bushmere Estate was chosen as the area was referred to as ‘Bushmere’ on old maps of the district. The Bushmere logo represents the three elements vital to the growing of grapes – earth, water and sun.

Bushmere Estate is open for appointment during the winter months for wine tastings.
