Two Paddocks

The Short Story

Who

We are Sam Neill { The Proprietor } family and friends: Vintners. Growers and producers of some of the greatest wines imaginable. All modesty aside. We’ve decided this is no company, for modesty. And our wines are so much better than that.

What

A very very small company, utterly obsessed with Pinot Noir. And Riesling. And with great pride - organics, quality, authenticity, detail and style. Having said all that, we don’t take ourselves at all seriously - the seriousness we leave to our SERIOUS wines.

Where

We have four beautiful organic vineyards artfully scattered around Central Otago . The southernmost wine region in New Zealand. And possibly the world. And you can find, if you try hard, our wines somewhere near you. If that’s too hard, we have a splendid Private Paddock Club, which you are welcome to join.

When

We planted our first grapes in the Gibbston Valley in 1993, and our first vintage was in 1997. Our last vineyard, on the Felton Rd in Bannockburn, we acquired in 2013. We are absolutely of the present, and indeed the future but we are very mindful of the history, the culture of wine.

Why

That’s a tough question. The existential one. Well, just because we can. Because the Proprietor is slightly mad. Because we think we should. And because we love country life: we’re farmers.
