Our wines are lovingly produced in French oak barriques over an 18 month period in our underground cellar. Possibly the most beautiful cellar room in Waiheke.
Influenced by old world styled wine and grape varieties, our wines are produced with a respect for nature and minimal intervention on the wine making process. Focus is on quality above all else with the majority of vineyard work carried out by hand.
All the fruit used for Poderi Crisci wines is estate grown and selectively hand harvested. The grapes are extensively sorted in the vineyard to ensure that only the very best fruit comes into the winery, a second more intensive sorting process is then carried out prior the crushing, finishing with a natural melalactic and aged in French oak barrique using 25% of new oak for the red varieties.
PODERI CRISCI-A SUSTAINABLE & FULLY ACCREDITED VINEYARD SINCE 2012
One of the finest examples of a kitchen garden lines the entrance to Poderi Crisci. It is not uncommon to see the chefs in the garden sourcing what are definitely the freshest possible ingredients and herbs. Our garden is carefully managed by our talented head gardener providing fresh seasonal produce all year round.
From a bountiful herb garden, salad leaves and tomatoes, to artichokes, figs, pumpkin and some of the finest zucchini you will ever see. We truly believe you cannot match the goodness that comes when you go straight from the garden to plate. Via the kitchen of course.
The garden highlights the importance that we place in fresh ingredients used with high quality condiments such as our own olive oil and Sapa. Finish your meal with Agrumetto Citrus liqueur, Aquavite and other Italian influenced speciality products created at the vineyard.
Another reason things just taste better at Poderi Crisci.
