The Bone Line

A new winery from the Waipara Valley. Named in reference to the nearby K—T Boundary line that defines the end of the Mesozoic Era and the extinction of dinosaurs.

A group of very experienced North Canterbury winemakers are behind this new brand on Ram Paddock Road. Planting started in 1989 and there are now some 60 acres of producing vines. Soils range from river gravels with silt and limestone to alluvial loams over gravels.The blocks in the vineyard differ in height and aspect with the river terraces being partially encompassed by cliffs.
