    Background

    Three Riesling fanatics – Max Marriott, David Paterson, Andrew Burge

    We grow Riesling. We craft Riesling. We love Riesling. A lot. The only winery in New Zealand dedicated solely to Riesling.

    It’s no secret. It’s all around us.

    In Central Otago, there is a special dynamism – a tangible synergy – between Riesling and this place. The schist rock, the hot days, the cool nights, the arid climate, the mountain and valley landscape. And no other grape variety has the ability to express site so authentically and candidly. The small satellite sub-regions of Central Otago tell us, very plainly and very simply, who they are through the medium of Riesling.

Drinking and driving

We ask members to always be conscious of these limits and to take care when attending Club events.
