Organic and biodynamic
MOMO means ''offspring'' in Maori, and all Seresin's MOMO wines are fully organic. Just over 50% of the blend is fruit harvested from Seresin's three biodynamic vineyards which are certified by Demeter: Raupo Creek, Tatou and Noa.

This is the largest of the three vineyards, and is located in the foothills of the Omaka Valley to the south of the Wairau Valley. The clay rich soils of the 51 hectare vineyard are ideal for growing Pinot Noir. The land is also planted with Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Viognier. Sheep and cattle herds are pastured here as well, making good use of the lush grass available in the areas unsuitable for growing vines.
