Ata Rangi vineyard was founded by Clive Paton and his sister Alison in 1980.
The aim was use the to produce a Pinot Noir that rivals the best in the world. Today, it's fair to say, the dream has been fully realised.
The success of this small, family-owned producer is due in huge part to the formidable talents of winemaker Helen Masters. Helen was one of the key driving forces behind the vineyard's move to organic certification. Her focus on sustainability and vineyard health has seen the wines improve dramatically since her coming on board in 2003.
Ata Rangi is one of the jewels in the crown of NZ wine and one of the most respected producers of the 'New World'.
