Overview

In the province of Marlborough high sunshine hours are moderated by a mild sea, while steep mountains keep moist and chilly winds at bay. A long cool growing season leads to gorgeous flavours.

My goal is to make the Province wines in a classic Marlborough vein, emphasising the varietal intensity created by leafy vineyards, ripe fruit and cool-climate growing. – Simon Waghorn, Winemaker

The Winemker

Simon Waghorn is a winemaker. Astrolabe Wines is a winemaker label.

Astrolabe was created in 1996, and is a culmination of a winemaking career that began in 1982. All Simon’s skill and experience combine to capture the essence of Marlborough in wines of purity, focus and elegance.

Simon is fascinated by the distinctive qualities of the Awatere Valley, Wairau Valley and Kekerengu Coast sub-regions of Marlborough, whether bottled alone or when blended.

What's in a name?

As well as being a navigational instrument, L’Astrolabe was the name of the ship of French explorer Dumont d’Urville who explored the Marlborough coast in 1827.

Simon chose the name Astrolabe because of the historic ties with Marlborough, and he liked the connotations of exploration and discovery.
