About Rod McDonald

Rod McDonald

Rod McDonald Wines is a family owned wine business. Everything they do reflects the love they have for ‘their place’ – Hawke’s Bay, and their enduring ambition to make world class wines. In 2006 they began searching out great vineyard sites that would eventually supply grapes to make the great wines of their future. The people working in their vineyards, winemaking and business are all motivated by the same ambition of making great wine, reflecting their place and ideas. They have chosen what we believe are some of Hawke’s Bay’s greatest spots and have embraced the varied landscape providing themselves with an environment to grow a number of different varieties and wine styles. At their inland vineyard, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah grow as these are their hottest blocks. At their highest and most inland vineyard, closer to the mountains, they grow Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. Cooler nights here provide the conditions they need to produce fragrant, complex and concentrated winesVisit Rod McDonald Website
