Steve Bird Wines is a small family owned and operated business built on manākitanga - a generosity of spirit toward the land and each other. The foundation of sharing and caring.
They are driven by a deep connectedness with the earth and its sustainability, and an inherent belief that of greatest importance, is the relationships we form with each other.
The wines are hand crafted, ultra-premium, single vineyard wines produced in Marlborough.
He produces three varietals under both the Steve Bird label and the Manu label - sauvignon blanc, pinot gris and pinot noir.
Steve has found that this site in Gisborne produces pinot gris grapes that retain a wonderful flinty, minerality in the wine, for which the region is so renown.
The aroma is intensely varietal, showing fresh pear with hints of exotic spice on the nose. The palate has both richness and poise with the ripe fruit flavours highlighted by the wine’s sensuous texture.
