Welcome to our Neck of the Woods, Central Otago
We’re not interested in making mass produced sh*t. We believe in bold tastes and bolder characters.
Our goal is to make authentic wines that harness the weird and wild of Central Otago, staying true to the land with minimal intervention winemaking. We craft small batch fine wines including Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and an Orange wine that show off this unique and wonderous wine region.
Those that follow the rules rarely make history. So we forge our own path. And do things our way.
Are we unconventional? Yes. Uncompromising? Absolutely.
But that’s exactly what makes our Neck of the Woods worth exploring.
