Wines that breathe of their place
The wines of Pyramid Valley are born in the dramatic soils and slopes in North Canterbury, New Zealand. This unique site of altitude, limestone, slope, rock and rich soil is our Waikari Estate and home to some of the most profound Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines in the world. Our second estate, Manata in Lowburn, Central Otago, has unique humus rich soils and produces deeply expressive and harmonious Pinot Noir wines.
Across both sites biodynamic viticulture and a natural approach to winemaking create handcrafted wine that breathes of its place and tastes like nowhere else on earth.

Botanical Collection – North Canterbury2020 Pyramid Valley Botanical Collection 4-pack presentation case
The story of our Botanical Collection is rooted in the foundations of our Waikari Estate in North Canterbury. The initial plantings were arranged by Mike and Claudia Weersing according to specific minute changes in soil composition between the unique limestone and clay particles. These changes reflected the decision to plant either Chardonnay or Pinot Noir. Interestingly, the meadow growing in each parcel was also different, with different species of meadow plants being present. These parcels have been named according to the dominant botanicals in the meadows from their beginnings as a vineyard in 2000, and since their release in 2006 they have created a new dimension for fine New Zealand wine, illustrating the incredible impact of this remarkable vineyard on the sense of wine.They are wines that truly breathe of their place.
