Organic & Bio-Dynamic

Our commitment to farming organically is the heart and soul of our business. All of our vines, in New Zealand and our Gevrey-Chambertin vineyard, are farmed organically. We plan to convert our other vines in France to organic farming in the future. In addition, with the space we need for cows, compost and preps, we are able to follow biodynamic practices at home base on Central Otago. Come and visit us to see our organic and biodynamic practices in action.

Our Wines

In Central Otago, we produce a range of award-winning Pinot Noir wines, along with a Pinot Noir Rosé.
In Burgundy France, we continue the Pinot Noir theme and in addition, make some delicious Chardonnay wines and a Crémant de Bourgogne.

Surveyor Thomson 2016
PINOT NOIR

Terroir in a glass - very site specific, sophisticated and unique, our Surveyor Thomson Pinot Noir is our flagship wine.

We hold its release date back to provide our customers with a perfectly balanced Pinot Noir hence the older 2016 vintage. This wine has real age, texture and structure and is the perfect food wine.

The Parallels

When examining our Kiwi and French wines side by side, you’ll likely be struck by the differences. Younger vines in untouched soils versus gnarly thick trunks deeply rooted in 1,000 years of history and viticulture. Yet when you sip a glass of Surveyor Thomson alongside our Gevrey-Chambertin or Mercurey wines, you may also be struck by some similarities. This is the joy of wine!

Cellar Door

Our Cellar Door is a welcoming spot to try our wines, whether in the heat of summer, or with the comfort of a log fire in winter. As you taste our wines, perhaps take a look at some fascinating paintings and maps by David’s great-great-grandfather, John Turnbull Thomson after whom our enterprise is named. Thomson explored and mapped Central Otago in the 1850’s, as one of the province’s earliest explorers.

News - 18 April 2021

For the team at Domaine Thomson, it’s fair to say that April has been a truly Jekyll and Hyde month.

For us, the good Dr Jekyll was represented by a terrific vintage in autumnal Central Otago.
