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.
Vendanges began at les Evocelles last Wednesday, 18th September, on a beautiful sunny day!
Vendanges have started on Sunday morning at our white Burgundy vineyard at Saint-Aubin! The parcel is in the Climat, le Travers de Chez Edouard, which is just behind the premier Cru Climat, Derrière Chez Edouard.
Simon Gourley, Vineyard Manager for Domaine Thomson Wines in Central Otago, has captured the title of New Zealand Wines Young Viticulturist of the Year for 2019. Domaine Thomson are proud to announce our very own Simon Gourley as Young Viticulturist of the Year 2019. So proud even that it bought a tear to the eye of owner David Hall-Jones when listening live from Invercargill.
