About Spy Valley

Waihopai Valley isn’t the sort of place you stumble across.

Hidden in the depths of the Southern Valleys, we share the Waihopai with an international satellite communication station that finds the terroir perfect for spying too. It’s an intriguing part of the world, one that we invite you to taste and discover…

The 1990s were a time of discovery and courage in Marlborough. Deep in the Waihopai Valley, Bryan and Jan Johnson had the audacity to establish 180 hectares of estate vineyards on land considered too hard, too dry and too unfertile for wine.

It was a venture that started with a passion for the land. This pioneering spirit established one of New Zealand’s most successful family-run wineries, now growing 7 varietals and exporting to 35 countries.

Today, Spy Valley’s commitment remains to the land and to the people who tend it – we are simply farmers at heart, nurturing soil and vine to cultivate the complexities in our wine. And we’re mindful that it’s our focus on sustainability which will ensure our guardianship of this land for generations to come.

We’re considered a little clandestine around here, deep in our bewitching valley. Perhaps it comes with being named for our proximity to the spy base down the road, but we like a bit of mystery.

Perhaps it’s because we are always searching for the best of the best to produce exceptional wine. Perhaps it’s because managing six varieties of grapes takes a great deal of knowing the land, the environment and climate, and in the past we’ve classified these traditions.

These are secrets, however, that we’ve decided it’s time to share.

 

Winemaking

Harvested at peak flavour maturity from our estate and grower vineyards across Marlborough. Gentle juice extraction, cold settled and fermented in stainless steel tanks with a range of aromatic yeasts.

Vineyard

Vertical shoot positioning, shoot and bunch thinning to restrict yield.

Our Forest & Bird Mission

It’s been an incredible journey to nurture and restore the spring-fed native wetland at our ‘Area H’ vineyard over the past few years – now a sanctuary for countless native trees, birds and other wildlife. This year we’re on a mission to take the initiative further than our own backyard!

Satellite + Forest & Bird

We are all satellites drifting around a beautiful planet. It’s important that we protect it! We’ve aligned Satellite Sauvignon Blanc with Forest & Bird to help give nature a voice. Now you can enjoy a gold medal wine while supporting Forest & Bird too!
