the Awatere Valley
From the craggy peaks of the inland Kaikoura Range to the glacial blue of the Awatere River, our valley is an untamable terroir
The Pacific Ocean borders the east, in a windswept stretch of blue. Mount Tapuae-o-Uenuku towers in the south, and the western horizon gleams in gold, with sun-bleached high country hills.
In between, on a sliver of terrace at the edge of the river, Eradus grows wines that encapsulate this extraordinary place.
