Sherwood Estate is very much a personal family business, with Dayne and Jill owning and operating it since the late 1980s. These are â€˘ Claymore Vineyard Church Road â€˘ Whitestone Vineyard Georges Road â€˘ Weka Creek Vineyard MacKenzies Road â€˘ The Terrace Vineyard MacKenzies Road. This splendid array of prime vineyards are planted to Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Riesling and Chardonnay.
Further north are the estate's Marlborough vineyards: â€˘ Hammerichs Road Vineyard â€˘ Selmes Road Vineyard â€˘ Rowley Crescent Vineyard â€˘ Old Renwick Road Vineyard. These vineyards are planted to Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Based on nearly twenty years of growing grapes and making wine, Dayne and Jill Sherwood now specialise in Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling.
In the vineyards, the family and their vignerons are flat out supervising the contract teams around Marlborough and Waipara. Vines are covered with nets to protect the fruit from local fauna.
