In the Vineyard
We keep the vines healthy and yields low to maximise flavours and ripeness. At harvest, the best grapes are hand picked to avoid damage, selecting only those bunches that meet the ripeness and quality criteria. In this way, we know only the best fruit goes into making Ata Mara wine. The fruit is taken to the winery as it’s picked and the speed ensures all the goodness is kept in the grapes.
Ata Mara Winemakers
Ata Mara Estate works with award winning winemakers Sarah-Kate and Dan Dineen to produce our Pinot Noir wines. Sarah-Kate and Dan are the ‘new generation’ of winemakers; qualified, experienced, passionate and talented. They have been working with the vineyard since 2007 and know how to coax out the best from our Pinot Noirs.
Our white wines are made by Peter Bartle and team at Vinpro using cool fermentation in stainless steel to maximise the fruit flavours and freshness.
