About Main Divide

Main Divide
Main Divide is the local name for the mighty range of the Southern Alps which form the backbone of Te Wai Pounamu (the South Island of New Zealand). The wines are produced by the Donaldson Family at Pegasus Bay Winery in the Waipara Valley of North Canterbury. This wines are made from fruit sourced from growers around the valley, selected for their ability to express unique regional and varietal characters. Where possible, the Donaldson family work with growers that allow them to have significant input into the management of the viticulture and they generally contract whole vineyards, giving them control over crop levels to ensure the highest standard possible for fruit concentration and ripeness. Natural methods typify their approach, along with as little intervention as possible at all stages from vine to bottle. The family believes in sustainable viticultural management, minimal handling of fruit during processing and gentle pressing and clarification by settling. Visit the Main Divide Website
