Establishing a vineyard was a dream shared by my mother and father. Sadly my mother passed away on her 49th birthday in 1995. A few years on my father continued their dream, and with the help of my two older brothers and I, established what is now known as Lesley’s Vineyard to celebrate and commemorate her life.

Located in the renowned wine growing sub region of the Bridge Pa Triangle in Hawke’s Bay, Lesley’s Vineyard was planted in Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Semillon.

While ZARIA wines sources fruit from other Hawke’s Bay vineyards, Lesley’s Vineyard will always remain the heart and soul of ZARIA wines.
