Der Besuch im Weingut von Barbara Lawson lohnt sich immer. Nicht nur dass Barbara und ihr Team umwerfend nett sind. Es ist auch jedesmal ein Vergnügen die Weine zu verkosten. Besonders empfehlenswert ist natürlich der Klassiker: Lawson Dry Hills Sauvignon Blanc. Umwerfend ist der Reserve Sauvignon Blanc. Wir lieben aber auch den Pinot Noir Rosé, den Pioneer Gewürztraminer, den Pinot Gris Gewürztraminer und die verschiedenen Pinot Noir.

About Winery and Wines

When you combine more than 20 years’ experience with an inquisitive spirit, the result is a perfect balance of knowledge and innovation. These two traits can be found in every bottle of Lawson’s Dry Hills wine – wonderful, top quality fruit from our carefully nurtured vineyards transformed into imminently drinkable wines using modern winemaking techniques.

The original company vineyard was planted in 1980 by Ross and Barbara Lawson, who launched the Lawson’s Dry Hills label some twelve years later, in 1992. Today, the company’s wines include Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and our famous Gewurztraminer, all made from fruit grown in Wairau, Waihopai, Omaka and Awatere Valleys. These different regions and carefully selected vineyard sites provide varying characteristics derived from the different soils and microclimates, giving many options when it comes to blending to that much-anticipated Lawson’s style.

The dedicated bunch of people that make up our small team at Lawson’s Dry Hills are very ‘hands on’, living and breathing every part of the viticultural and winemaking process. We do a lot of talking and tasting before pouring our shared inspiration into every bottle.

The resulting wines offer an authentic expression of the place and the grape variety they are made from together with a certain special something that we believe can only come from passion.

It would seem that the combination of elements that go into each of our wines is a winning formula. We have lost count of all our gold medals – the certificates cover the walls in our cellar door while the shelves are buckling with the weight of all our trophies – both local and overseas. But actually we’re not ones to boast so that’s enough of that. We’d rather roll our sleeves up and get stuck in to making the best wines possible, after all, that’s what we dream of, talk about and well, it’s actually what we do.
