The Donaldson family have been seriously involved in wine since the early 70’s and were pioneers of local grape growing and wine making. Pegasus Bay is a family-owned and operated enterprise.
Our aim is to grow grapes of the highest quality, which fully express the features of the vineyard. Natural methods and as little intervention as possible at all stages from vine to bottle, typify our approach.
We believe in sustainable viticulture management, organic techniques, low crop levels, minimal handling of fruit during processing, gentle pressing and slow fermentation. We allow wines to go through natural malolactic fermentation and clarify by settling. Our red wines are bottled without filtration. We aspire to capture the unique flavours of the vineyard in our wine.
In our restaurant we aim to give diners a total food and wine experience. The menu is created around our wine list, each dish being matched with a suggested wine and changes regularly to utilise local seasonal ingredients.
