Real Life.

Gunn Estate bears the name of its founding family. It began in the 1980’s, on a farm in the beautiful Ohiti Valley in Hawke’s Bay.

The family wanted to make honest wines – approachable and deliciously enjoyable. Wines that celebrated real life.

Today we gather our grapes from carefully selected vineyards in Hawke’s Bay, Marlborough and Australia – but our distinctive symbol is a constant reminder of where we came from and what we’re all about. The ‘O’ stands for Ohiti Valley, our original home. The waves inside the ‘O’ symbolise the Greywacke river gravel and waters of the Ngaruroro River winding through the valley. Home and heart. True to Life.


Past. Present. Future.
