The Te Awa winery is nestled in the heart of the Gimblett Gravels wine growing region in Hawke’s Bay. The full Maori name given to the site is Te Awa o Te Atua which means 'River of God', a reference to the mysterious subterranean streams over which the vineyards are situated. The Hawke’s Bay region has a maritime climate, with hot, dry, north-westerly winds, low rainfall and a long growing season with an annual average of about 2,300 sunshine hours; this makes Hawke’s Bay one of the warmest areas in New Zealand. Their whimsical approach to exploration, creativity and imagination is embodied in their Left Field wines which go beyond the boundaries of the single estate. It is the birthplace of the unexpected, the weird and the wonderful.
