Tussock Hill Vineyard Christchurch

is a small, family owned and run vineyard located on the hillside up above Christchurch city.

We use organic and sustainable methods, working biodynamically over the whole 10 acre/4.1h block of land as well as in the growing of the vines of various Pinot Noir clones. We aim for the boutique market of hand tended, high quality product that is loved and nurtured the whole way through.

Vintages

We planted in the 2000 season, our first vines in three terraces cut out on the hillside.

By 2008, we had 3000 vines in seven terraces. We harvested our first full crop off the first 3 blocks and were very pleased with the result, a full bodied Pinot that reflects the site, vine balance and microclimate as well as our methods of working.

Now we have six vintages.

Our goal

to bring the best wine we can develop from a unique and beautiful site by working with the land and nature’s rhythm in a gentle and sustainable way.

Enjoy the fruits of our labours and take pleasure.
