About Mt Difficulty Wines

Mt Difficulty Wines

Mt Difficulty Wines now owns some of the oldest vineyards in the Bannockburn sub-region of Central Otago. The vine age gives the wines, particularly the Pinot Noirs, extra complexity and concentration. The Mt Difficulty brand started in 1998 with a very small production of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, made by Grant Taylor of Gibbston Valley Wines (now of Valli Wines). The Air New Zealand Wine Awards in 1999 put Mt Difficulty on the map, with the 1998 Pinot Noir winning a gold medal and the Chardonnay, silver. The vintage release in October 2001 marked a progression, with several Single Vineyard wines being seen for the first time. The next major change to the portfolio happened in 2004, when their second label Roaring Meg was launched. The fruit driven, early drinking style of the Roaring Meg wines struck a chord with the market and the brand has been the main source of growth for Mt Difficulty Wines since 2007Visit the Mt Difficulty Wines Website
