Runholder is named for John Martin, a man who purchased a “run” of land in Southern Wairarapa and founded the township of Martinborough, which is where the first vines in the region were planted. Te Kairanga currently sits on part of John Martin’s original land holdings and the Runholder Pinot Noir is crafted from parcels of fruit from our home vineyards.

Winery Tasting Notes


Our 2009 Runholder Pinot Noir showcases aromas of black cherries, plums, and star anise.


This wine has a velvety texture and is full of rich, ripe fruit accented by subtle oak.

Low-cropping vines, selective hand-picking, small batch fermentation and sensitive oak handling contribute to producing this fine wine. Winemaking is ‘hands-on,’ with traditional fermentation in small vats (two to three tonnes), hand-plunging and gentle pressing off. Our winemaking facility uses ‘gravity’ principles for gentle handling of the grapes - a key contributor to quality.

Winery Profile

"tee-kigh-runga" - where the soil is rich and the food is plentiful, Te Kairanga is one of Martinborough's founding vineyards established over 20 years ago. In keeping with the pioneering spirit surrounding the vineyard, a number of Te Kairanga wines have hailed from Martinborough's history and that of its inhabitants dating back to 1879. Our own John Martin Reserve Pinot Noir, known and loved by many, is notably named after the foundingfather of Martinborough - John Martin himself. Likewise the Pinot Runholder is aptly named as a tribute to the runholders of the land back in time.

Distinctively boutique, Te Kairanga was established over 25 years ago and is one of Martinborough’s founding wineries. We have six vineyards here, each with its own distinctive characteristics and suited to different varieties and viticultural practises. Our focus is handcrafted, benchmark wines that showcase old world style with new world flair, and are true representations of the Martinborough growing region.
