Rangiroa produces the world's only wine made from grapes grown in a coral atoll. A winery with a backdrop of coconut trees – a truly unique scene seen perhaps only in Rangiroa. Wine making started in 1992 by Dominique Orowa, a businessman from Normandy, France. After years of experimentation and hard work, the first wine was produced in 1999. Two types of grapes, the Carignan and Muscat Hamburg, are grown using the coral atoll soil and the abundant sunlight in Tahiti. Grapes are harvested twice a year in winter and summer, producing only 40,000 bottles annually, making this a rare wine.
The Rangiroa wine won the Silver Prize (two years in a row, in 2008 and 2009) at the Vinery International, an international tasting event. Its flavor has a hint of coral, and is rich and fruity in taste.
Sip on Rangiroa Wine during your stay, and ponder its history - a wine with such a unique & interesting story.
