Jamie Goode’s wine blog – blogging about wine since 2001…. I visited the vineyard, based in the Pisa subdistrict of the Cromwell Basin, with Claudio Heye (who sells the wines), winemaker Dean Shaw, and vineyard manager Simon Gourley. Farming here is biodynamic, and they have been certified organic by Biogro since 2014.
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.
