Project Description

Kurukuru Wines

In 1836 our 4th great grandfather, Captain James Joss, purchased a parcel of land from chief Tuhawaiki on the remote northern peninsula of New Zealand’s Stewart Island. He married our Maori Grandmother KURU KURU of the Ngāi Tahu tribe. Here they farmed vegetables.
They loved their land and our family origins have been the inspiration for Kuru Kuru Wines. KURU KURU is our link to Ngāi Tahu, our iwi, our tribe. Each bottle of KURU KURU proudly displays her tā moko, the mark carved on her chin, signalling her respected position in Maori society.
