“You may think you know New Zealand wines but I can assure you that until you have tasted Pyramid Valley, you have no idea."

-Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate

"If New Zealand has created a finer Pinot Noir than these two single-vineyard wines from Pyramid Valley Vineyards, I haven't tasted it."

-Matt Kramer, Wine Spectator

"...in my opinion they make some of the finest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in New Zealand."

-Jesse Mulligan, NZ Herald 2020

“Perhaps the most exciting potential for Chardonnay in the South Island is the limestone-strewn Pyramid Valley area of North Canterbury. There, boutique producers like Pyramid Valley Vineyards […] have worked magic with the grape.”

-Christina Pickard, Wine Enthusiast

We are Natural M.A.D.E.

There’s a special way of thinking that runs through our family of wines. It starts with the belief that nature is in charge. We allow our vineyards to express their soils and place through natural, sustainable viticulture. Our vineyards are tended according to the principle of biodynamics, working with the energy of the cosmos and feeding the soils and ecosystem of the site to let nature work her wonders. Where possible we use the natural ecosystem of the vineyard and winery to ferment our wines and any intervention is kept to a minimum. This results in a wine that tastes like nothing else on this planet. Natural is also about us, these wines reflect us as people, how we live within our place and the natural forces that shape our approach. Wines, after all, are made by people. This is why M.A.D.E is the fire in our belly. We craft experiences built on Modern, Art, Design and Escape. It’s how we share our love for the pleasure, culture and craft of wine.

The ocean has provided one of the most biologically rich sources of nutrition for natural farming.
For centuries seaweed has been applied as a tonic to vineyards throughout the world. Recently scientists discovered how to extract these natural tonics and transform them into a potent, high-quality product. And you don’t have to live next to the beach.

Roses have been used for centuries in vineyards to provide early warning signs of pests and disease. Science and technology have created a more precise approach for prediction with designer weather stations. Roses remain in vineyards today simply for their beauty.

Rudolf Steiner’s biodynamic farming philosophy prescribed compost made from cow manure and herbs applied according to the rhythms of the sun and zodiac. Modern science has designed natural farming systems using the likes of alyssum planted to attract wasps that protect vines from invasive pests.

The world’s great vignerons wore out many boots walking the vineyard observing the vines to fine tune their care. Modern technology created drones armed with sensors to measure disease, vine health and more. However ground-breaking, robots will not replace boots and human touch in the vineyard.
