Our Wine

Bladen Wines has an exceptionally well regarded, talented and experienced winemaking team. Sam Smail along with Diana Katardzhieva and Rowan Langdon hand craft Bladen wines.

All grape varieties planted are well-suited to the distinctive climate and soils of Marlborough’s Wairau Valley.

Bladen Wines believe that hands on care given in the vineyard will produce the best quality grapes to make wine with. Every effort is made to harvest the most flavoursome, clean fruit. 

No barrels are used when making our white wines to ensure the delicate fruit flavours are never masked. Red wines are aged in the best quality French oak barriques to enhance the rich flavours of the Pinot Noir and Merlot Malbec blend.
