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.
