About Dog Point

Dog Point

Dog Point is one of Marlborough’s oldest private vineyards; it is located on the southern side of Marlborough’s Wairau Valley at the confluence of the smaller Brancott and Omaka Valleys. Topography and soils varies from silty clay flats to gentle undulating clay slopes with desirable sunny northerly aspects. Dog Point was so named by pioneering shepherds whose dogs became lost and bred to form a marauding pack that attacked local flocks of sheep. These dogs lived on the tussock and scrub-covered southern hills of what is now Dog Point Vineyards, a landscape characterised by the iconic New Zealand native plant the Ti Kouka ‘cabbage’ tree which appears on the Dog Point logo. Dog Point first released wine in 2004 from the 2002 vintage. From well-established vines their four wines - Sauvignon Blanc, Section 94, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir - are all sourced from low cropped, hand-picked estate-grown fruit, using organic practices. A family-owned company, they make regionally distinctive wines with a point of difference. Visit the Dog Point Website
