Babich winery has wine in three different region: Hawke's Bay, Marlborough and Auckland. Hawke's Bay contributes a substantial amount of the fruit used for many Babich wines, including the iconic Irongate range and The Patriarch. The Hawke's Bay region is blessed with a superb climate for viticulture – sufficiently cool to ripen grapes slowly, yet warm and sunny enough to promote optimum fruit ripening. While it has become a familiar name worldwide for Sauvignon Blanc, the region’s most planted grape variety, Marlborough is also renowned for its Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Riesling as the free-draining, alluvial loams over gravelly sub-soils in the Wairau, Waihopai and Awatere valleys provide ideal growing conditions. For Babich Wines, Marlborough makes a heavy contribution to the company’s portfolio. Babich has invested in substantial vineyard land and in production facilities.
