    Sunset Valley Cellar Door

Guide Bio

Ian Newton and his partner Ros Squire bought a hillside property in the Upper Moutere area in 1993. They planted some vines, grass and trees, with a focus on natives, and was a certified vineyard by 1997. The winery and cellar door are perched on top of the hill, next to the family home, with views of the valley below. Sunset Valley’s organic crop was commercialized in 1998, and has been successful since. Everything takes place on the property, from grape-growing to winemaking, storing and bottling. Ian and Ros have gained a strong following for their friendly welcome and flavourful wines.
