Gladstone Vineyard - Making premium wine, Wairarapa

About Us

Owner-operated by Christine and David Kernohan since 1996, Gladstone Vineyard has an established reputation as a quality boutique wine producer, making award-winning wines of finesse and complexity.

The Gladstone district in the Wairarapa, New Zealand is a fast growing wine area, as winemakers realise the potential of soil and climate that produce low yielding rich concentrated grapes. Christine believes that the most important part of winemaking occurs in the vineyard.  Grapes are managed with great care, ensuring the best possible fruit is brought to the winery at harvest.  The wines express the season, the soil and the area – the terroir.  The Gladstone style is aromatic, fresh and varietal.
