Overview

Ata Rangi, meaning "dawn sky" or "new beginning" is a small New Zealand winery with a big reputation for serious Pinot Noir. Located at the southern end of the North Island, it is owned and managed by a family trio - Clive Paton, his wife Phyll and his sister Alison - with star winemaker Helen Masters and Vineyard Manager Gerry Rotman. Ata Rangi is well established in 25 international markets and has an enviable reputation as one of the New World's most respected Pinot Noir producers."...the long-serving, dedicated team behind Ata Rangi just go from strength to strength. Their Pinots have always been great and yet, even in a world where the Pinot benchmark gets higher every year, Ata Rangi is better than ever." Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, April 2013

A bit larger than some of the other vineyards we had visited and a bit impersonal, but really nice wines!! Hostess was very knowledgeable and tried to make us welcome with polite conversation!

We went to 7 wineries around Martinborough and ATA Rangi was the best! All the wines were delicious and the staff very friendly and knowledgeable. We bought three bottles there and we hope to order some more from overseas. I can’t wait to go back!...More

This is a nice cellar door, though opens a bit later than the others. Friendly staff who knows their wines well. We enjoyed a few of these wines - more than we expected to. Pretty setting.

My wife and I visited Ata Rangi Martinborough [winery]. The tasting room was fairly full and subsequently a bit on the loud side. The server did a great job of keeping us going with the various wines. Nice stop if you're in the area.

Wakes 10km to raise funds for local school - wine tasting as we went and delicious water melon snacks! Tasting stops staffed by locals and whole event sponsored by local businesses and townsfolk! Weather was perfect and the town Martinborough neat and welcoming.
