The Pass : Home


Between the Wairau and Awatere winegrowing valleys of Marlborough lies The Pass. We carefully select fruit from both valleys to showcase the best flavour characteristics Marlborough wines have to offer. Fruit from the Wairau Valley, with its cool, dry climate, combined with that from the Awatere Valley, with a cooler, windier climate, results in the distinct and unforgettable vibrant fruit flavours only found in New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.

Marlborough New Zealand


Originally The Pass began as a necessary path comprised of bridle tracks along with ferries allowing rivers to be crossed.


Today THE PASS is a stretch of modern highway that runs over the mountains between the Wairau and Awatere Valleys.

Its beautiful vistas include abundant thick forests interspersed with densely stocked sheep farms. No matter where you travel, The Pass is a beautiful journey that leads to discovery, adventure and world-class Sauvignon Blanc.
