About This Vineyard
Vynfields’ vineyard is a boutique organic/biodynamic 5.3 hectare vineyard on the celebrated Martinborough Terraces. The soils are free-draining with a thin layer of silt loam over old river gravels. The temperate climate has low rainfall, hot and dry summer days, and reliably dry autumns (with cool nights) which makes the Martinborough Terraces an ideal location for the cool climate grapes of Pinot Noir and Riesling. The vineyard was originally planted in 1991 with 1 hectare of Riesling and 3 hectares of miscellaneous vines. John and Kaye replaced the latter by Martinborough proven Pinot Noir in 1998.
