Tohu Wines is the world’s first Māori owned wine company.
Since 1998, Tohu has focused on producing estate grown, single vineyard wines from New Zealand’s premier grape growing regions.
The Tohu winemaking philosophy is to create wines that capture the flavours of each region’s unique environment, while upholding respect and protection of the land for future generations.
Today, Tohu is acknowledged as He mātāmua taketake – the original, the first Māori-owned and operated wine label.
Tohu Wines is part of Kono, a Māori, whānau-owned company based in Te Tauihu , the top of the South Island. With more than 4000 owner families, their purpose is to preserve and enhance the “taonga” for present and future generations.
One of Tohu’s core values, manaakitanga, encapsulates care and respect for people and relationships, including the natural environment. It governs the way they interact with one another. An essential part of Māori culture is their desire to feed and nurture people. Sharing food is a traditional way of bringing people together.
