About Our Vineyard

After 25 years of global viticulture and winemaking, Kiwi/Frenchman Luc Desbonnets has produced sublime wines under the Frenchman’s Hill Estate and Expatrius labels. All wines are produced from specialised 100% Waiheke coastal vineyards established by Luc in 2006. The inaugural 2010 vintage limited release wines won champion wine trophies and are sending a veritable stir through the fine wine world. These are “must taste” wines for the serious wine enthusiast and collector.
