Producer Profile

Supernatural Wine Co.

We encountered Supernatural Wine Co. through their US importer Whanau and are thrilled to feature their skin contact wines! They specialize in certified organic, naturally vinified, low sulfur white and skin-fermented white wines sourced from a north-facing hillside estate in Hawke's Bay, New Zealand. Embracing a philosophy rooted in exceptional terroir and traditional methods, they prioritize crafting wines that authentically express their unique terroir. Dry farming their vineyard and relying on indigenous yeast for fermentation, they maintain a hands-off approach, adding only minimal sulfur before bottling.

Where The Wines Come From

Hawke's Bay

Hawke's Bay, situated on the eastern coast of New Zealand's North Island, produces natural wines that embody the region's diverse terroir and innovative winemaking spirit. Blessed with a maritime-influenced climate and a range of soil types, including gravelly river terraces and limestone-rich hillsides, Hawke's Bay offers ideal conditions for grape cultivation. Here, winemakers embrace sustainable practices and minimal intervention in the cellar, allowing the true expression of the fruit to shine through. Indigenous grape varieties such as Syrah, Chardonnay, and Merlot thrive in this unique environment, yielding wines of exceptional quality and complexity. From elegant and aromatic whites to bold and expressive reds, Hawke's Bay's natural wines capture the essence of the region's vibrant landscapes and pioneering winemaking ethos, inviting drinkers to experience the pure, unadulterated flavors of New Zealand with each sip.
