Welcome to Riverlore Wines. In New Zealand mythology, Taniwha (pronunciation:
tanifa) are creatures that live in deep pools in rivers, dark caves, or in the sea, especially in places with dangerous
currents or deceptive breakers. They may be considered highly respected protective guardians of people and places,
or in some traditions as dangerous, predatory beings. We welcome you to try our wines, protected by this mythical creature.
