Two PaddocksBuy from this producer
Two Paddocks is a small family wine producing business that is dedicated to making great wine. It was founded in 1993 with modest ambitions and a small vineyard in Gibbston, Central Otago, New Zealand. At the same time, friend of the family Roger Donaldson planted the land next door, hence the name Two Paddocks. Sam Neill wanted to produce a good Pinot Noir that would, at the very least, be enjoyed by family and friends. To their great surprise, the first vintage in 1997 produced a beautiful Pinot, in spite of a difficult growing season. 1998 was a more distinguished vintage, and in 1999 they were astounded to produce a Pinot that was, they thought, world class. Since that original release in 1999, Two Paddocks has continued to grow and is now producing multiple Pinot Noirs and Rieslings. Visit the Two Paddocks Website.
