When Abel Tasman first discovered New Zealand back in 1642, the name he gave to this land mass was “Staete Landt” which means “Land (discovered in honour) of the Governors (Staete) (of the Dutch Republic)”.
More than 350 years on, “Staete Landt” is the name for an emerging wine company founded by Ruud Maasdam and Dorien Vermaas, originally born in the Netherlands. The link between their new home and New Zealand’s discovery by one of their predecessors, was obvious: the perfect combination of their heritage and their future.
They uncovered a copy of the original map drawn by Abel Tasman. This very first and original map of New Zealand strongly influenced the label design for Staete Landt wines. Abel Tasman sailed the West Coast of New Zealand and quite accurately mapped the coastlines.
The Dutchman explorer and “Map Maker” Abel Tasman first came to New Zealand in 1642 – by “ship.” Another Dutchman, Ruud Maasdam, uprooted his family to New Zealand in 1996 – by “airship.”
Ruud mapped out vineyards and a life for his family in the South Pacific, Aotearoa. Life changing, as it was for Abel Tasman, too. The “Map Maker” label depicts both their travels and Ruud’s journey to make exceptionally vibrant Marlborough wines.

Stone Bay brings you the essence of New Zealand’s special vineyards, its unique Maori history and its geography in this finely crafted wine of superb quality.
New Zealand, or Aotearoa as it is also known in the local Maori language, means ‘Land of the Long White Cloud’. It is a land of beauty and splendour, rugged mountain ranges, braided rivers and vast oceans. Therefore it seems only fitting that Stone Bay, our special New Zealand hand-crafted wine, should be adorned with a Maori fish carving.
Maori carvings are unique symbolic artifacts and are often worn proudly by many in New Zealand. Maori legend is inextricably linked with the sea – the God Maui created New Zealand by hauling the land from the sea with a giant fishhook.
New Zealand or Aoteroa as it is fondly known in the local Maori language, means the ‘Land of the Long White Cloud’. It is a land of beauty and splendour complete with rugged mountain ranges, dense forest and fiordland glorious in its unspoilt habitat. New Zealand is home also to the large and majestic native Southern Rata, a tree typically found in the South Island.
The Rata is a magnificent tree that blooms in summer with masses of bright red flowers nestled amongst the greenery. These superb flowers attract a number of native bird species and bees that enjoy feeding on the nectar.
We have aptly named our wine Rata, taking our inspiration from New Zealand’s beautiful and special environment, flora and fauna.
The English translation of ‘Mouku’ is the ‘hen and chicken’s fern’ a plant that has a long history in New Zealand.
In keeping with the Marlborough Wines philosophy of drawing inspiration from the landscape, the flora and the fauna of New Zealand, we created this wine as a tribute to this plant that is found in the native forests and streams of the country.
In pre European times, the Maori people had a high regard for the plant. The juice was drunk and the root eaten with relish. Very young fronds of the Mouku were gathered when they were four to six inches high and cooked in a hangi with kumara. Tender as asparagus and reputedly not unlike it in taste.
Marlborough Vines brings you the essence of New Zealand’s special vineyards, its winemaking history and its geography in this finely crafted wine of superb quality.
New Zealand or Aotearoa as it is also known in the local Maori language, means ‘Land of the Long White Cloud’. It is a land of beauty and splendor, rugged mountain ranges, braided rivers and vast oceans.
The distinctive foliage of the grape vine signifies strength and beauty. We have captured this in our wines that have been finely crafted for your enjoyment. Therefore it seemed only fitting to name our wine Marlborough Vines.
Marlborough Brook brings you the essence of New Zealand’s special vineyards, its winemaking history and its geography in this finely crafted wine of superb quality.
New Zealand, or Aotearoa as it is also known in the local Maori language, means ‘Land of the Long White Cloud’. It is a land of beauty and splendor, rugged mountain ranges, braided rivers and vast oceans. Marlborough Brook our New Zealand hand-crafted wine reflects this nature.
Marlborough Brook pays homage to the small streams or ‘brooks’ that feed the great rivers of Marlborough and make winemaking in the valleys of the Wairau and Awatere regions possible.
Our motivation for making Marlborough Mountains comes from the stunning contrasts in Marlborough, of the land and the sea.
There is the grandeur of the Kaikoura ranges, their snow-capped splendour standing out brilliantly against the blue sky. These are the northernmost extension of the vast Southern Alps and aptly named the ‘Looker-on’ mountains by Captain James Cook. On a fine clear day in winter these snow-clad ranges can be viewed across the Cook Strait in Wellington.
