On a sun-soaked hill beyond the Gardens is the vineyard that produces Sculptureum’s award-winning wines. The 10 acre vineyard overlooks the sculpture gardens with views out to Little and Great Barrier Islands. Sculptureum wines are best enjoyed with a meal at Rothko or why not savor the experience and take a bottle home.
The vineyard was first planted in 1994 as Hyperion Winery and prior to that, it was a dairy farm. In 2007 Sandra and Anthony Grant increased the size of the vineyard and changed the varieties of grapes grown. The vineyard has held a sustainable accreditations since 2011. Our wine styles are new world with approachable balance and concentration. The wines compliment fresh seasonal food which is showcased at Rothko Restaurant.
The current wines available are Chardonnay, Bordeaux blend, Syrah and Rosé. Sculptureum wines are available by the glass from Rothko Restaurant and can also be purchased to take home. If you are interested in purchasing or stocking Sculptureum wines, contact us here.
