“There’s a beauty in not knowing how hard things will be sometimes.” Pete, Viticulturalist at Terrace Edge.

Purchased by the Chapman family in 1999, originally a sheep farm in Waipara (north Canterbury) and converted by planting 2000 olive trees on the lower terrace. With zero experience and a complete trial and error approach, they’ve gone on to become a multi award winning, boutique Waipara wine producer that has been voted the NZ Organic Vineyard of the Year on multiple occasions over the years. Nice one guys!

Speaking of not knowing things – you can’t say the same about Gourmet Traveller Magazine. A few years ago they called out these guys as “a winery to watch” – they were bang on!

Much like the wine they produce it’s all hands on at Terrace Edge. Pete looks after the winemaking side of things (and some marketing, if he ever has time), Jill answers the phone and keeps the office in order, Nana is out in the vineyard mending the nets. And Bruce, well, you’ll find him knocking back a glass, running the wine tastings and giving visitors the yarn about their cool little family run business.

This is their 2020 Pinot Noir and as well as being certified organic, it’s bloody delicious. A Burgundian style Pinot, hand plunged and aged 10 months in French oak. It’s full of dark, savoury fruits flavours with a silky finish.
