Misha’s Vineyard is spectacularly located on the edge of Lake Dunstan in the Bendigo sub-region of Central Otago – the Pinot Noir capital of New Zealand.
With a strong belief that the best wines are made in the vineyard, owners Andy & Misha Wilkinson established the vineyard with a 'no compromise' philosophy which requires an exacting viticulture regime, hand-picking, and considerate winemaking methodologies, in order to produce premium New Zealand wines to suit a defined and discerning market.
The 57-hectare estate has 26 hectares of planted vineyard comprising Pinot Noir and a range of aromatic white varieties including Pinot Gris, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Gewürztraminer. Two-thirds of the vineyard is planted in Pinot Noir vines where there are eight clones of Pommard and Dijon vines selected (all grafted on disease-resistant American rootstock), in order to blend and select for the ultimate in consistency and quality and to produce a complexity of flavours representing the best of New Zealand Pinot Noir.
With internationally renowned Olly Masters and his superb winemaking abilities, the wines consistently receive outstanding accolades and are now available in more than 20 countries around the world.
Misha’s Vineyard was named one of New Zealand’s Top 20 Wine Producers by the esteemed Decanter (UK) magazine.
