Cottle Hill Winery is a very popular small family-owned Bay of Islands winery founded in 1996 by Michael and Barbara Webb who sailed from San Diego, California aboard their 35ft Island Packet yacht Sprig.
The couple fell in love with the Kerikeri area and believed in its potential for growing quality grapes to make premium wines. They have created a range of wines that suit most palates from the novice wine drinker to the connoisseur.
Cottle Hill is a casual and relaxed winery experience. You can sample the award-winning wines, savour the food and enjoy the stunning view from the highest peak in the Kerikeri area.
Michael and Barbara invite you to come and experience Cottle Hill where the philosophy is that ‘wine is for everyday and everyone. Enjoy life, enjoy wine!’.
