About

In 2000 the Thomas Family purchased a farm on the Omihi hills and began work to create the Greystone vineyard. From the outset there was one goal: to realise exceptional wines from the unique terroir.  In early 2014 they began the conversion from conventional to organic viticulture and obtained full certification in late 2016. From vintage 2017, Greystone Wines will be 100% certified organic.
