When Har and Sophie Eradus found a footprint of land at the edge of the Awatere River, they knew it was extraordinary.
Their connection to the land seemed fated when Sophie cleared a shed on the property and found an old potbelly door with an embossed logo that entwined their initials - "H", "S" and "E" – and inspired the Eradus wine label.
Their son Michiel and his wife Hanna took over the business in 2004, committed to celebrating the unique terroir of this place.
The family knows good fortune led them to this remarkable imprint of land in a valley now globally acclaimed for its wines, says Michiel.
“Our role has been to take that good luck and build it into vines and wines that pay homage to the Awatere Valley.”
