Aronui wines are created by the Māori-owned New Zealand wine company Kono Beverages, part of the Wakatu Incorporation.

The word Aronui derives from ancient Māori mythology and speaks of the pursuit of knowledge, including in the arts and working with the land in beneficial ways.

True to our Māori culture, we have a strong spiritual connection to our land and are committed to passing it on to future generations in pristine condition. True to our winemaking history, we are committed to growing exceptional grapes and creating exceptional wines.

Whenua Matua is the name of the vineyard where the grapes for Aronui wines are grown. The name means significant land—and significant it is. The vineyard is on tribal land in the Moutere Hills region and has remained in the ownership of its traditional owners. This vineyard is extremely special to those associated with Aronui. It has spectacular views of the mountains in Kahurangi National Park, including Mt Pukeone, the ancestral mountain of the tribes of the neighbouring town of Motueka.

Aronui wines can be bought direct from us in case quantities of 6 bottles.
