Owned by Sam Neill, of Jurassic Park fame, Two Paddocks is a boutique winery in Central Otago. Sam started the winery in 1993, with a view to producing wines for him and his friends to enjoy together. It would seem that things have got a little out of hand since..
Two Paddocks have some fo the best vineyard holdings in Central Otago and they take great care to ensure the land is properly cared for. Since 2017 the whole estate has been certified organic.
Featuring the Proprietor’s Grandfather, Sidney Neill, on the label, Picnic is our perennial favourite – the wine to enjoy everyday and a wonderful introduction to the pleasure of Central Otago Pinot Noir. This fruit was sourced from Two Paddock’s own estate vineyards in the Alexandra, Gibbston and Bannockburn sub-regions of Central Otago. Picnic Pinot Noir is made in a diminutive style aimed to reflect the characters that Central Otago Pinot does so very well – black and red cherry fruit, spice and a generosity that keeps you reaching for the next sip.
