Askerne Estate winery was established in April 1993 when wine lovers John and Kathryn Loughlin purchased the original 11.6 hectares site in Te Mata Mangateretere Road. They called the property Askerne, being the olde English name of Kathryn’s birthplace - Askern in Yorkshire, England.
At Askerne, the majority of fruit is hand harvested and sorted. Winemaking techniques have been refined in search of elegance, structure and the aromatic qualities that we desire for each wine style. The winemaking approach is to gently coax the flavours and aromatics from the fruit and then to polish and showcase them in all their glory.
The aspiration is to produce wines which complement food, but are vibrant and exciting when standing alone.
