vinoptima estate

Vinoptima is Latin for Best Wines and a desire to create truly exceptional Gewurztraminer wine has governed every aspect of the Vineyard’s development.

Vinoptima Estate is a fully integrated, self-contained vineyard and wine producing business dedicated to the production of a single commercial wine from grapes grown entirely on the Estate. No grapes are grown under contract for Vinoptima and no other winemaking or bottling is undertaken on behalf of third parties.

The Vinoptima Estate vineyard comprises 9.7 hectares divided into two blocks of roughly equal size. The original South block was planted in 2000 and the new North block was planted in 2007. The Vinoptima Estate vineyard is planted in 5 different clones of Gewurztraminer that Nick Nobilo has selected during more than 25 years work with the variety.

The company’s operations include grape growing, wine making, cellaring, bottling, marketing and selling ultra premium Gewurztraminer under the Vinoptima label.



The Vinoptima Estate is majority owned by Nick Nobilo who is also the managing director and winemaker.

Vinoptima Estate is situated on the East Coast of New Zealand’s North Island, 26 kilometers inland from Gisborne on Ngakoroa Road in Ormond, just off the main Gisborne to Opotiki road.

The Vinoptima Estate is not open to the public however visitors are welcome by arrangement.
