Hand-crafted wines  |  Marlborough, NZ

Single vineyard Organic wines.

Authentically hand-created from grape to glass.

Small but mighty in the heart of Marlborough.

Created thoughtfully, and with care, Alcove Wines come from a boutique, organic-certified Syrah vineyard on Rapaura Road, a premium Marlborough sub-region.

Established in 2010 as ancillary planting to the onsite restaurant cellar door by the previous owners Giesen Wines, owners Mike and Zana Whittaker took over the property in 2021 with a passion to keep the vineyard's organic status. 

The vineyard is close-planted in an old world style in low-trellised 877 clone Syrah vines, and is hand cared for by Mike and Zana.

Working alongside winemakers Aaron Zuccaro and his partner Bec, who are focused on low-intervention winemaking, wines produced from the block are organic, vegan-friendly and expertly crafted.


One acre of premium Syrah grapes, close planted in old-world style


41 rows in total within the vineyard including three of young Chardonnay


A French clone known for full bodied fleshy flavors of black fruits and peppers while lending a strong tannic grip to the mid-palate
