Wooing Tree

Wooing Tree is a family owned single vineyard site, situated in the heart of Central Otago next to the town of Cromwell. The site is owned by Stephen and Thea Farquharson and Stephen's sister and brother-in-law, Jane and Geoff Bews, who are all from farming backgrounds and are committed to producing top quality grapes. They came back to Cromwell to run the vineyard at the end of 2004 in time for their first vintage 2005. Their wine is made by award winning winemaker Peter Bartle and his team. A tree on the land called ‘the Wooing Tree’ had long been a popular place and impending removal of the tree for the vineyard prompted locals to campaign to save the tree. It turned out it had a special place in locals’ hearts and when the family learnt of its history and local importance, it was decided the tree had to stay and that this was the obvious name for the vineyard and image for the wine label. Visit the Wooing Tree Website
