About Aronui

Aronui

Aronui is the sister brand of award-winning Tohu wines and was established in early 2013, but has already shown it’s calibre with gold at the Spiegelau International Wine Competition for the 2012 Aronui Single Vineyard Pinot Gris. The word Aronui derives from ancient Māori mythology and speaks of the pursuit of knowledge, including in the arts and working with the land in beneficial ways. Aronui's wine making philosophy is to create a style of wine that best reflects its region. Their grapes are grown in Nelson’s Upper Moutere, one of New Zealand’s most exciting boutique wine regions. The vineyard is on tribal land and has remained in the ownership of its traditional owners - a place of historic importance and reverence. The region is composed of gentle rolling country with clay soils laced with layers of gravel. Heavier soils composed of clay are ideal for Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. Visit the Aronui website here
