Dayne and Jill Sherwood started planting grapes in the Canterbury region in 1986 and bult a winery in the outskirts of Christchurch. The have outgrown that facility and have moved north to Waipara. A logical move given their interest in producing high quality Pinot Noir. The wines are marketed under three ranges: Clearwater - top range single vineyard, Sherwood Estate - main label, and Stratum - varietals and blends. In the US, a wine marketed as Zenith Vineyards is also attributed to Sherwood Estate.
