Vineyard manager at Cromwell’s Domaine-Thomson Simon Gourley will represent Central Otago at the Bayer New Zealand Young Viticulturist of the Year 2019 competition at the Bragato conference in Hawke’s Bay next month. He and seven other viticulturalists competed in the selection competition at Otago Polytechnic’s Central Campus Bannockburn last Thursday and then during the awards evening at the Bannockburn Hotel.
David and PM are in Burgundy, catching up on our vineyards and winemakers there. There was also quite a significant birthday celebrated! Happy Birthday David!
