About Man O' War

Man O' War
Located at the eastern end of Waiheke Island, Man O’ War boasts a pristine and breathtaking spread of coastal hillsides with high cliffs and stunning beaches. This rugged coastline was ‘discovered’ in 1769 by Captain James Cook, and today Man O’ War takes responsibility for maintaining its beauty and integrity for future generations. Grapes were first introduced to Man O’ War in 1993, with a firm belief that world class wines could be produced there. Since then the team has carefully selected and developed 76 individual pockets of hillside, each chosen for the unique and exceptional qualities they bring to the wines. Today 150 acres of vines are strategically placed around Man O’ War’s 4,500 acres. Meticulous design ensures that the distinct soil profile and microclimate of each block is used to best advantage, with different rootstocks, clones and planting densities selected to match the specific terroir on offer. Visit the Man O' War Website
