Te Whare Ra is a small vineyard and winery located in Renwick, a sub-region of Marlborough, owned by winemakers Anna and Jason Flowerday. Te Whare Ra was first started by Allen and Joyce Hogan in 1979. Allen’s reputation for making outstanding aromatics grew and is what TWR has become known for. His foresight and knowledge has helped TWR be where they are today - the oldest boutique winery in Marlborough. Anna and Jason appeared on the scene in 2003, fresh from working as winemakers in Australia and looking for a place to call their own. Anna and Jason wanted somewhere that was small enough for the two of them, but on a scale that would show that they are very serious about what they are doing. Winemaking is in their blood; both of their families have been involved in the industry for a number of generations and they have never wanted to do anything else.
