Takahiro K Wines

Our Story



When Takahiro Koyama, owner winemaker of Takahiro K Wines came to New Zealand in 2003, it was to study Viticulture and Oenology at Lincoln University. He was offered to work with CP Lin at Mountford Estate as a cellar hand while he was a student at Lincoln.

During his time at Mountford, Takahiro went overseas several times to experience different winemaking. First it was Weingut Keller in Rheinhessen, Germany in 2006 (Riesling) and then it was Au Bon Climat in Central Coast California in 2007 and 2008 (Pinot Noir/Chardonnay plus other varieties).

Takahiro K Wines is Takahiro’s own label, and it is represented by the ouroboros – an ancient symbol of a serpent or dragon eating its own tail, signifying rebirth or renewal.

Takahiro K wines are produced in tiny quantities using Organic practices at every level. They reflect the variety and particularity of the very special Waipara Valley soil types and vineyard sitings.
