Two Paddocks - Sam Neill

Words from Sam: "I wanted to produce a good pinot noir that would, at the very least, be enjoyed by my family and friends. Frankly, my friends will pretty much drink anything, so this didn't seem too hard. To our great surprise, our first vintage in 1997 was much better than we hoped, in spite of a difficult growing season.  Today, at Two Paddocks, we are producing five different pinot noir from four organically grown vineyards in the three main valleys of Central Otago. We still only produce two varieties - pinot noir and a tiny volume of riesling. My one goal is to produce world class pinot noir."
