After making wine for other people for many years, winemaker Chris Darling and viticulturist Bart Arnst teamed up in 2007 to make great wines under their own label. Bart is a founding member of Organic Winegrowers of New Zealand, and previously worked for Seresin Vineyards, overseeing their conversion to organics. He left in 2005 to provide a consultant service to those interested in organic change and has worked closely with a large percentage of the New Zealand organic winegrower sector.
They work with select small and mostly family growers - all certified organic or bioydnamic. All wines are also vegan.
