Terrace Edge – Wine2Trade Portfolio

Terrace Edge is a boutique vineyard and olive grove situated on the south bank of the Waipara river, North Canterbury. Bruce and Jill Chapman purchased the property, part of an established sheep farm, in 1999 and developed it, planting 12 hectares of vines and 2000 olive trees. After supplying contract fruit, he first vintage of Terrace Edge wines was 2005.
The varietals planted are Riesling, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Syrah. In 2013 Albarino and St Laurent were added. Viticulture is managed by son Peter. The wines were initially made by Belinda Gould of the Muddy Water winery. Dom Maxwell became the winemaker from 2011 vintage following the sale of Muddy Water to Greystone.  The wines are now made by Gavin Tait at the Muddy Water facility. Terrace Edge is committed to the ‘Greening Waipara' project which aims to increase biological diversity. Terrace Edged gained BioGro organic certification in March 2014.  www.terraceedge.co.nz
