The Vineyard and Winery was established in 1969 by the Vuletich family.
Nestled alongside State Highway 1, three kilometres south of Whangarei. The name Longview Wine Estate
reflects the commanding view that the elevated clay slopes give over the Whangarei Harbour. Gumdiggers was named after our Dalmation Grandfather who worked the Northland Gumfields.
The site provides early ripening fruits of rich concentrated flavours.
