A wise man once said “find the best vineyard sites you can because you can’t out perform your vineyards.” So they found the Sancta vineyard on the now world famous Felton Road in Bannockburn and set up shop.

Terra Sancta. It means sacred earth, holy land and there’s definitely something pretty bloody special about this little corner of the wine world. It’s home to the first vines planted in Bannockburn. And the firsts don’t stop there, these guys can also claim to be the first producer of a wine based Botanical Aperitivo in NZ, the first to plant the Lagrien variety, the first super premium Rosé and the first Rosé producer to make Michael Cooper’s “Super Classic” list.

Once upon a time Otago was all about rabbits and gold. The gold’s gone and the Rabbits are stew – now it’s the grapes that are worth their weight in gold (and especially Pinot Noir!) in these neck of the woods. The Mysterious Diggings label is named after those mining days of old.

This the Terra Sancta Mysterious Diggings Pinot Noir from the 2022 vintage. Using Pinot Noir from their Bannockburn vineyards the guys at Terra Sancta describe this one as a “delicious, vibrant Pinot Noir” and reckon she’s all good to drink now up to 5 years from vintage.

This made something of big news when one of the world’s leading critics, James Suckling, award it a whopping 98/100! Suckling said “Gorgeous aromas of fresh flowers, ripe strawberries and tangerine blossoms.
Medium-bodied with a lovely balance of fruit and acidity and a creamy texture that is open and cashmere-like in texture. Wonderful finish. A triumph. A joy to drink.”
