Two Paddocks was established in 1993 by Kiwi actor, Sam Neill, with the intention to make a small amount of Pinot Noir for his family and friends. Sam could be considered as a pioneer of this region, this was the very early days of viticulture in Central Otago, a region now 80% planted to Pinot Noir.

Sam's wines are beautiful, a delicious expression of cool climate Pinot Noir with complex aromas of black cherries, subtle spices and minerals with a structure of juicy acidity and gentle tannins.

Brits have fallen in love with the wines of New Zealand. The affair probably has much to do with the colonial heritage, but it also has a great deal to do with the excellent, benchmark wines that are produced here. The story must begin with Sauvignon Blanc, but certainly doesn’t end there. Since the 1970s the region of Marlborough has become the go-to area, perhaps in the world, for bright, crystalline ‘Savs’ which gave the French something to think about. But now, it is becoming as equally famous for its Pinots, which are now beyond just being less expensive alternatives to Burgundy, instead showing regional characteristics, from the dark cherry and spice of Central Otago to the brawn and dried herbs of Martinborough.

A special mention goes to the Chardonnays of Kumeu River of Auckland, as these are some of the most remarkable wines from this variety in the Southern Hemisphere.
