In the year 2000, Mike and Claudia Elze Weersing found the patch of earth they'd been searching 15 years for.
With a background in winemaking from Burgundy and vintages of experience from some of Europe's finest cellars, Mike knew what he wanted in a vineyard site. With Claudia by his side, they set about planting a biodynamic Garden of Eden from the ground up.
They planted four blocks, half Pinot Noir, half Chardonnay, on the slopes of Pyramid Valley in the South Island. The winemaking behind these wines is wholly minimalistic. Only old oak and clay amphora are used as vessels. Additions are a bare minimum. Every effort is taken to preserve the unique character of this special site.
These are some of the most compelling and individualistic wines in all of New Zealand that have received rave critical acclaim.
