At The root of Ohui

Ohui is more than a bottle of wine. Ohui is an actual place, nestled between Pauanui and Whangamata, on the eastern side of the Coromandel Peninsula, right next door to Opoutere.
It’s a special place, full of special people that come together and produce an exceptional wine. It’s also known as a ‘place of meeting’.

However, there is no cellar door (or gate), nor a fancy winery here.  In fact, it’s largely still a farm, with 2.5ha dedicated to growing Ohui’s grapes. The volcanic soil (similar to that of Waiheke Island), makes it an ideal environment for the vines to thrive, producing a high quality grape, which in turn delivers a flavour that makes our wine unique.

The people of Ohui

Ohui Vineyard, was first planted by the Kimpton family in 2000. It started in the pouring rain, where the family planted the first of the vines - now set in Syrah, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

The boutique vineyard is now fully established, incorporating certified sustainable practices, and using solely organic processes. It employs people who are passionate about producing a quality product that is unique and true to its roots. And true to the sense of Ohui as a place of meeting, the Kimpton’s, young and old, still come together to help at harvest time.

It’s all done by hand, under the guidance of our talented viticulturist Jayden Blomfield, who is  passionate about Organics and sustainability. Reaping the artisan approach to winemaking, and delivering a wine that is synonymous with the Coromandel. By truck it is delivered  into the hands of Ohui ‘s winemaker Hayden Penny, based in the Hawkes Bay. With his attention to detail and using only the best in organic processes, he is able to create a fine, delicate and full flavoured wine.

With the meeting of land and people, Ohui has come to be one of the finest artisan wineries in the Coromandel.

Ohui proudly supports the protection of the NZ Dotteral, sustainability and organic processes.
