About Smith & Sheth
As contemporary negociants, Smith & Sheth craft wine with a fresh take on great traditions.
Making the most of over 35 years of experience with the growers and makers of New Zealand, Steve Smith MW and Brian Sheth forge relationships and hand select the best fruit from the most exceptional vineyards in Hawke’s Bay, Marlborough and Central Otago.
Our parcels of fruit from the Omahu appellation are all located in the famous Gimblett Gravels winegrowing district. The incredibly stony soils of the ancient bed of the Ngaruroro River and this warm location create perfect conditions for ripe, full-bodied and gravelly-textured red grapes, and soft flavoured, stony textured Chardonnay.
Our wine expresses the beauty and character of a place and the passion of its people, but are first and foremost delicious, multi-layered, and classy.
