MOUNTFORD ESTATE

Biodynamic emblem

 

Established in 1991, Mountford Estate is a boutique vineyard and winery set on a hillside in a stunning park-like environment in the Waipara region.

It grows on an area of land dubbed ‘The Golden Mile’. A high amount of heat and light, combined with the soil make-up of clay on top of marl with active limestone deposits makes this site particularly special. Emphasis is placed on using biodynamic methods in the vineyard and, from the moment a young vine is placed into the earth to the harvesting of the grapes, right through to the winemaking practices, as much as possible is carried out by hand and even foot.

“There are very few wineries that are yet to be ‘discovered,’ these days particularly in the Pinot Noir field, but all I can say for certain is that Mountford is teetering on the edge of super stardom.” – Matthew Juke
