The story began sixteen years ago when the Lawson family purchased a small hillside farm set amongst the famous Gimblett Gravels sub-region. Our sole intention was to establish a terraced hillside vineyard, producing limited quantities of premium wine. Being a winegrower for some 20 years on the Heretaunga Plains, particularly in the Gimblett Gravels area of Hawkes Bay, I was searching for more, something a little different, a fresh challenge. Creating unique, premium wines from the extreme slopes and limestone and clay influenced soils of the Cypress hillsides has provided this challenge. The harsh, sun-baked environment of the terraced property ensures our vines struggle, and results in low yields of intensely flavoured grapes. Together with Gus' wife Melanie, we are proud to introduce the inaugural release of Cypress wines. These wines are produced from hillside grapes which are blended with fruit from the stony soils deposited around the base of our hill, producing full bodied wines best enjoyed in their youth.
