Mount Beautiful estate is located on the eastern side of the South Island between Marlborough and Waipara. Set up by David Teece and his family this is not just a back garden project. They set it up to produce world beating wine and put a new region firmly on the map. True pioneers in the North Canterbury region, their passion is to produce farm-to-table wine and food, while vitalising the ecosystem and the community. 23 different soil types in this small area, plus an array of microclimates that could be utilized for very specific clones.
