STAN or Stanley Rover was the Landrover that took horticulturalists Bridget and Steve on an epic 32,000km journey across Africa in 1991. In 2003 they settled in Marlborough, New Zealand to plant a vineyard.
The ROCK is Mount Tapuae-O-Uenuku, known locally as Mt Tappy, that looks down on our vineyard from the head of the Awatere Valley in the stunning province of Marlborough. This old eroded volcano is the source for our free draining, river-deposited terraces of soils.
STANROCK is the ultimate combination of these raw elements to craft our series of award winning wines." It is the export label for Stanley Estates.
Our vineyards are located in the north of New Zealand’s South Island, under the cool gaze of Mount Tapuae-O-Uenuku (the footprint of the rainbow) in Marlborough’s spectacular Awatere Valley.
The Awatere Valley’s sunny days and cool nights ripen grapes slowly.
