Our vineyard was established in 1994 and is located on the upper terraces of the Gibbston Valley. Our philosophy is to apply an ecological, sustainable viticulture approach to managing the vineyard and producing chemical residue free wines.The winemaking processes are completed on the basis of minimal intervention. Wherever possible we use no animal products in processing our wines. We are using limited filtration, and the Pinot Noir is unfiltered.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.

Gary Vaynerchuck, Wine Library TV
