Ngatarawa Wines Ltd:
Ngatarawa began as the shared vision of two very different families. What the Corban family name is to winemaking, so the Glazebrook family name is to farming.

Ngatarawa began as the shared vision of two very different families. What the Corban family name is to winemaking, so the Glazebrook family name is to farming. It was the remarkable union of these two families, with their rich heritages of vision, innovation and passion that saw Ngatarawa Wines established in former racing Stables in 1981. When Alwyn Corban and Garry Glazebrook converted the Stables and planted their vineyard, it was one of New Zealand's earliest boutique wineries. Ngatarawa still remains a key pioneer of grapegrowing and winemaking in the Bridge Pa Triangle on the western edge of the Heretaunga Plains in Hawke's Bay. It was established at a time when there were only 96 winemakers in New Zealand, with just 8 in Hawke's Bay and only 2 in Marlborough. At 10 acres, Ngatarawa's original planting of Chardonnay was the largest in Hawke's Bay at the time. Other varieties in the original 27 acre vineyard included Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Gewurztraminer and Semillon. In 1999, after 18 years of pioneering, the Glazebrook family sold their shareholding to Alwyn and Brian Corban. Today, Ngatarawa is owned by cousins Alwyn and Brian Corban who continue their family's 100 year winemaking heritage in New Zealand. Ngatarawa has continued to grow and enjoys an established reputation for quality and style throughout the world as a premium wine producer. Read less
