The original vineyard was established by Wellington engineer Rex Brooke-Taylor who took the name Framingham from his ancestral home town near Norwich, England.
Our initial releases were produced using other wineries' facilities. The first wine released
under the Framingham name was a 1994 Riesling. Our winery and tasting room were built in 1997,
and a specialist red wine handling facility and barrel hall was added in 2002. We produced wine
from our new winery on Conders Bend Road in the Wairau Valley for the first time in 1998.
Today we are a family-owned Sogrape company, our range includes Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer,
Pinot Noir, Viognier and Montepulciano. In past years we have also produced Cabernet Sauvignon,
Syrah, Pinotage, Merlot, Merlot-Malbec, Chenin Blanc and Methode Champenoise.
