Welcome to the Abel Family

We grew up immersed in wine, but also eating the intensely flavoured and crisp apples for which New Zealand is world renowned.  Spring 2019 marked the planting of our very own vineyard and orchard in the Moutere and we’re looking forward to sharing our wines from this beautiful place with you.

Mark and Sophie McGill are proven gurus when it comes to making great quality cider.

Yvonne Lorkin, Wine Editor

Bought for novelty value, actually the nicest cider I've ever tasted!
