Welcome and thank you for visiting the new Matariki website.
We have had a few changes and Matariki is now 100% owned by Taurus Wine Group Limited, on behalf of John O'Connor's family.
MATARIKI WITH PASSION
Matariki Wines was founded in 1977 from small plantings, with a passionate belief in making fruit-driven world class wines of elegance and power.
Matariki, a cluster of stars that sits in the constellation Taurus, is a story of new beginnings. The stars arrival in the winter night sky announces the beginning of the Maori New Year.
With adversity comes strength and we are all passionately committed to developing our traditions with this new beginning for Matariki.
PRE-LAUNCH SPECIAL OFFER
Let’s start with a little something to kick those taste buds back into the internationally recognised and impassioned wines we will continue to produce…
Kent Baddeley, owner/chef at Ten Twenty Four Restaurant .... “instead of drinking my usual $60 wines at home, this is what I’ll be serving my mates…fantastic !!”
Soon to be released will be our ultra premium Cabernet dominant red blend, TAURUS 2007 A CELEBRATION with some fantastic changes to the labelling, incorporating the Matariki link to Taurus.
Following this releases we will begin to release some great wines from the remarkable 2009 vintage and another iconic Quintology. Watch this space.
