The Kumeu River Pinot Gris vineyards in Kumeu are producing grapes of high quality consistently that allow them to make wine that is rich, complex and delicious.

The Brajkovich family and Kumeu River Wines is a story that parallels the New Zealand wine industry. From the pioneering days to the establishment of the New Zealand wine industry to today, the Brajkovich family have been internationally recognised as producing world class wine. The Brajkovichs are focused on and internationally recognised as producing world class Chardonnay. Just as the Brajkovich family has grown, so too has the winery itself. Extensions and additions mark the milestones that have seen business adapt and expand over the years. Today, the winery produces around 250,000 bottles annually from 30 hectares of its own vineyards in Kumeu, and another 10 hectares from local growers. The Chardonnay wines of Kumeu River have gained a strong foothold within the international market, receiving outstanding accolades. The vineyard has gone on to become the globally recognised benchmark for non-Burgundy produced Chardonnay. “If you can taste history, duty, and family pride in a glass, it’s there in the Kumeu River producing some of New Zealand’s greatest Chardonnays, not to mention the world’s.” Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
