Obsidian wines are the true embodiment of their place of origin. Every exquisite glass of Obsidian speaks of this unique terroir, encapsulating not only the character of the weathered soils at Onetangi, home to Obsidian’s vineyard on Waiheke Island, but the coastal beauty of the surrounding environment.
Obsidian vineyard, with 10 hectares of vines, nestles in the hills of the Onetangi Valley. Here, small batches of grapes are grown on four discrete hillsides set out in an amphitheater-like fashion.
We strive to grow consistently ripe, concentrated, flavourful grapes and craft them into superb wines for enjoyment now and for cellaring. Our talented winemaker, Mike Wood, combines modern winemaking technology with traditional old world craftsmanship.
