Astrolabe Wines

Marlborough, New Zealand

Owned and run by the Waghorn family Astrolabe Wines located in Marlborough, New Zealand, are defined by vineyard site choices which showcase a unique terroir.




The climate in Marlborough is maritime with long warm days and evenings cooled by the sea breeze. These are perfect growing conditions for the aromatic Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Pinot Gris grapes and for subtle Pinot Noirs.


Grape farming at Astrolabe follows the Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand programme and Simon Waghorn takes personal responsibility for the vineyards as well as the winemaking.


With 36 years of grape growing and winemaking experience, Simon credits his award-winning wine range to careful site selection, expert picking decisions and delicate grape handling.
