Escarpment

Escarpment Vineyard is a specialty organic Pinot Noir and Chardonnay producer located in the Martinborough region of New Zealand

About the winery
At Escarpment, we have created an expression of NZ Pinot Noir and Chardonnay which has evolved over 35 years of dedication to the varieties. It has been sculpted by Tim Bourne and Larry McKenna from fruit entirely originating from Martinborough vineyards. We are interested in the structure, complexity and fruit expression of our wines and how they are pronounced from single sites. Our future is to fashion wines of great complexity and elegance from our certified organic status vineyards.
