About Ata Rangi
Ata Rangi, meaning "dawn sky" or "new beginning”, was founded in 1980 by Clive Paton, who planted his first vines on a small, stony sheep paddock at the edge of the Martinborough village as one of a handful of people who pioneered winegrowing in the area. Ata Rangi Pinot Noir is undoubtedly the flagship wine, though a number of other varieties are produced. In 2010 the business was honoured with the inaugural Tipuranga Teitei o Aotearoa or "Grand Cru of New Zealand”, one of only two holders of this distinction. Ata Rang’s vineyards are ISO environmental and BioGro organic certified.
