Te Kano wine is a sensory experience that could come from nowhere else.
‘Te Kano’ (Maori for seed) celebrates the lone surviving Kowhai tree affectionately known as ‘Old Man Kowhai’ on the Northburn slopes above Lake Dunstan — on land Te Kano Estate calls home. Committed to rejuvenating the land and a sustainable future through re-planting and excellent stewardship. Te Kano is for those who appreciate the rarest combination of layered elegance and sublime natural quality. Te Kano Estate comprises three vineyards, all under the careful guidance of Estate Manager Nick Hunter – Northburn, ‘Jerome’ and ‘Eliza’. The latter two are named after beloved family members and are located in Bannockburn.
Specialising in Pinot and Chardonnay, all our current wines are available for tasting. Come enjoy Te Kano’s hospitality and get into a Central Otago state of mind.
