Winemaker Audible Series: Te Kano

Welcome to the latest in our new series of audio interviews, where we hand the producer the microphone and allow them to tell us all about their winery and individual wines.

This time, it’s Dave Sutton, winemaker at Te Kano in New Zealand

Te Kano, meaning seed in Maori, seeks to highlight the very best expression of soil and season. The Lloyd family fell in love with this site in Central Otago and decided to buy land in 2015, starting with an established 11 years old vineyard near well respected Felton road. Two years later the first Te Kano wine was born. Helped with viticulturist Mike Winter and winemaker Dave Sutton, they produce a small selection from vineyards and barrels, which are often produced in extremely limited quantities.


First, choose a wine and you will find the link to hear Dave’s thoughts about it on the ‘product description’ tab. His view of the winery, with some interesting insights, is on the ‘about the producer’ tab.
