Guide Bio

Eric and Sandra Shackleton purchased land and began developing in 2000. From this development, Waitapu Estate Vineyard was born. Over the last 15 years, it has grown into a truly stunning family run boutique vineyard. Eric holds a diploma in Viticulture with the Eastern Institute of technology in Hastings. This allowed him to taste a wide range of wines and learn from many people in the industry about growing grapes and making wine. Eric and Sandra finally opened for business in 2007, when they had their first labeled wine, a Pinotage. This wine has since gained a silver medal in the Upper North Island Wine Awards. Eric and Sandra are proud to be founding members of the Northland Wine Growers Association, and enjoy the support of a wide range of viticulturists and winemakers.
