Tim and Judy Finn planted their first vines at Neudorf in the late seventies, a time of rejuvenation and renaissance in the New Zealand wine industry. The vineyard is dry-farmed organically on north facing Moutere gravels, and their ethos of minimal intervention extends into the winery.
Winemaker Todd Stevens continues the focus on wines with textural interest and finesse. Neudorf is regarded as one of the country's top small wineries with an enviable reputation for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
It’s not just about running an organic vineyard, but the business as well is run in the best way to protect our slice of the earth. This includes native plantings along the streambed, recycling food waste (chooks) rejecting polystyrene on all fronts, using recycled paper, composting, installing a charger for electric cars at the cellar door. even wine sent to private customers overseas uses wool protectors on each bottle.
