Vines in a time of wine renaissance
In the 1970s, New Zealand wine was embarking on a new and exciting era.
A wave of kiwi folk were seeking a reconnection to the outdoors and a fresh approach to agricultural industries, especially that of wine. It was 1978 when Tim and Judy Finn first planted an array of different vines. With little knowledge of viticulture, a few mortgages, a rickety old house and an unwavering perseverance in the face of the unknown, Neudorf Vineyards has become renowned for consistently top quality wines. Their wines are the result of a true connection between the vines and their environment. They are organic, sustainable, and incorporate a holistic eco-system of composting and dry farming, relying solely on the earth and a deep understanding of mother nature.
