A Simple Label






What's in a label?


Stonecrop - The vineyard sits on the edge of an ancient river bed, during geological upheavals blocks of greywacke, a grey sandstone, were deposited creating a river of gravel and stones.


Rosé - Our rosé is made with our own handpicked pinot noir grapes. 
Description: delicate aromas of rose petal and cherry complement citrus flavors and a crisp refreshing finish. 


Dry River Road - The renowned Dry River Road the original site of the iconic Dry River Road Wines.
It aptly describes the gravely and free-draining site.


Martinborough - An hours drive from Wellington it's a wine village packed with colonial charm, most of the vineyards are family owned with a focus on quality not quantity, also home to some of New Zealand's best pinot noir.

The Musket Room + Stonecrop Wines

We are delighted to announce that our handcrafted, estate grown rosé is now available by the glass at the Michelin star rated restaurant The Musket Room located on Elizabeth Street, Nolita.

Inspired by an era in New Zealand when adventure and discovery blossomed, The Musket Room, which opened in 2013, brings the spirit of New Zealand to the diverse Nolita neighborhood of Manhattan.

Chef and Co-Owner Matt Lambert, a New Zealand native who honed his skills working in some of New York’s top kitchens (Public, Double Crown, and Saxon & Parole, to name a few), draws upon his upbringing and home country’s cooking at the Michelin star-rated restaurant. The menu charts the evolution of New Zealand cuisine, from the country’s Old World traditions and Asian influences to its dedication to local and seasonal offerings, with ingredients sourced from the restaurant’s back garden. Only four months after opening, Chef Lambert, together with his partners, wife & General Manager Barbara Lambert and restaurateur Jennifer Vitagliano, celebrated receiving a highly coveted Michelin star, an achievement that continues to inspire The Musket Room team to provide diners with a unique experience. The restaurant was awarded a Michelin star for the third consecutive year in October 2015.

In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb

A simple dish for midweek - Roast lamb served with a potato gratin or 
galette or dauphinois, or any kind of spuds, gravy is a must! A friend shared with us her delicious gravy recipe, she makes it to accompany her sauerbraten - make a regular gravy but add ginger snaps.

A bottle of our handcrafted pinot noir is just perfect with this dish and a good way to 
celebrate the first day of March.
