Astrolabe was founded by winemaker Simon Waghorn as a winemaker label to allow him to produce wines of uncompromising quality, expressing region, variety and his personal palate.

Since he arrived in Marlborough in the early 90s, Simon has advocated for recognition of subregional diversity, and today Astrolabe produces wines from across the Wairau and Awatere valleys and down to the Kekerengu Coast.

Simon makes a thorough study of the Marlborough region and divides his wines into four thematic ranges: Province, showcasing the pinnacle of a Marlborough style; Valleys, embracing subregional variation on classic varieties; Aromatics, exploring alternative varieties; and Winemaker, focusing on ageworthiness and single vineyard terroir.
