Kate's Best.

“Radburnd Cellars is a dream come true for me – and I don’t say that lightly. It’s incredibly invigorating to create a winery with a clean slate so we’re able to completely focus on making small parcels of the absolute best wines we can - and that’s something that I have wanted to do for a very long time.”

- Kate Radburnd, Winemaker & Owner

Meet the family

Chardonnay 2018
Syrah 2018
Merlot Cabernet 2018
Our small and select family of wines - Chardonnay, Syrah and a Merlot Cabernet blend, are Kate’s personal favourites and represent the best of Hawke’s Bay. “They’re not big blockbuster wines. They’re proudly cool climate wines, aged in French oak, with a lovely line of pure fruit, subtlety and elegance. The pristine fruit paired with refreshing acidity means there’s a restraint about them allowing them to age beautifully.”

View Our Wines
We work with growers we know and trust, with vineyards that have the perfect characteristics for the wines that we want to make. We are making a single tier of the best wine we can make, so we are hands on in every step of the process - from picking grapes in the vineyard, to tasting and testing every barrel.

Our Winemaking & Viticulture
We make small volumes of handmade wine. So the best place to find our wine is on our website or by contacting us directly – and we hope you do.

“Wine is about enjoying with family and friends, and with beautiful food. And that is the most satisfying thing for us at Radburnd Cellars – we make this wine which we enjoy sharing with other people. It can’t really get any better than that.”
