This year marks 21 years since we planted the vineyard in Central Otago and 18 years since we started harvesting our grapes.
As a young lad growing up in Invercargill, I used to walk through the back of uncle John’s garden on Sunday evenings...
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.
The last 12 months have been particularly challenging for many people in NZ, HK and the world and we feel that supporting mental health is really important in these uncertain times.
I love Paris in the springtime, I love Paris in the fall. I love Paris in the winter when it drizzles, I love Paris in the summer when it sizzles. Hmmm, I’m less sure, of loving Paris, when it sizzles in a heatwave….. I had to go to Paris recently for administrative reasons (what a reason to go to Paris!). Of course, I took advantage of my time there to have some fun too. This little blog is for all my friends in lockdown in Auckland and elsewhere and all my friends anywhere else who are unable to travel, because of Covid. The weather was great on my first day, it was a beautiful, sunny...
Vendanges have finished in Burgundy, they were done quite quickly this year, due to the bad frosts in April.
