Ata Rangi, meaning "dawn sky" or "new beginning" is a small New Zealand winery with a big reputation for serious Pinot Noir. Located at the southern end of the North Island, it is owned and managed by a family trio - Clive Paton, his wife Phyll and his sister Alison. Clive planted his first vines on a small, stony sheep paddock at the edge of the Martinborough village in 1980 as one of a handful of people who pioneered winegrowing in the area. Ata Rangi Pinot Noir is undoubtedly the flagship wine, and in 2010 was honoured with the inaugural Tipuranga Teitei o Aotearoa or "Grand Cru of New Zealand". With a skilled team in place, including dynamic winemaker Helen Masters, Clive now has more time to focus on his commitment to conservation and to the Ata Rangi alliance with Project Crimson.


"You’d be hard-pressed to find a list of 'Best NZ Pinot Noir' that does not feature Ata Rangi at the top of the list."
Yvonne Lorkin

"This stunning estate makes the most revered Pinot Noir in New Zealand"
Matthew Jukes, MoneyWeek

"...the long-serving, dedicated team behind Ata Rangi just go from strength to strength. Their Pinots have always been great and yet, even in a world where the Pinot benchmark gets higher every year, Ata Rangi is better than ever."
Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, eRobertParker.com

"Ata Rangi is one of the founder vineyards, and arguably the most highly-regarded winery in the Martinborough (and Wairarapa) district, perhaps because there have been no pompous claims about their wines... - just constant, quiet attention to detail."
Geoff Kelly, geoffkellywinereviews.co.nz
