TIKI Wine & Vineyards Company Overview January 2012
Welcome to TIKI, an exciting new range of quality New Zealand wines. Founders and owners, Royce and Sue McKean, named their new wine venture TIKI to pay homage to the wisdom of Royces Maori ancestors. Royces great-great grandfather, Tiki Tere Mihi, was a chieftain of Ngati Uenuku, who revered the land and its significance to his people. The esteemed tiki is also a powerful good luck charm. TIKIs family-owned vineyards are all certified sustainable and organically farmed (since March 2011) under the guiding Maori principles of kaitiakitanga: guardianship, protection and preservation of the earth. 1. The TIKI story
Our mission is to make organically farmed premium New Zealand wines that are available at competitive prices in all channels of the global wine market. We compete in quality and value with the larger New Zealand wine companies that use traditional chemical farming practices. SUPPLY As owners of New Zealands largest organically farmed estate vineyards, we work with distributors and retailers to provide high quality, organically farmed New Zealand wine. COST Our size allows us to keep the cost of our wines on par with commercial producers of non-organic New Zealand wines. QUALITY ORGANIC Farming naturally, biologically and organically, using no agrichemicals, herbicides, insecticides or pesticides, treating the land with the respect it deserves, enables us to deliver the highest quality product available to wine lovers all over the world. 2.
