Muddy Water was the first certified organic winery in Waipara, just to the north of Christchurch. It's name is a direct translation of Waipara.
Founded back in 1993, it lies in the scenic beauty of the Teviotdale Hills in the Waipara Valley, covering 12 hectares of vines, and a small olive grove. The Thomas family have run the estate since 2011, with a major focus on organics, biodiversity and sustainable practice.
On the wine side.. they release tremendous Pinot Noir, Riesling, Chardonnay and a rare Pinotage.
