About the winery
Tim and Judy Finn planted their first vines at Neudorf in the late seventies, a time of rejuvenation and renaissance in the New Zealand wine industry. The vineyard is dry-farmed organically on north facing Moutere gravels, and their ethos of minimal intervention extends into the winery. Winemaker Todd Stevens continues the focus on wines with textural interest and finesse. Neudorf is regarded as one of the country's top small wineries with an enviable reputation for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. “One of the most distinctive, consistent and complex pinot noir wines made in New Zealand." James "One of New Zealand's most admired producers. Tim and Judy Finn have a great track record.” Jancis Robinson MW

History & Geography
Tim and Judy Finn were amongst the first to plant grapes in Nelson’s Moutere Hills, sited in the centre of the northern tip of the South Island of New Zealand. Our vines, the oldest of which date to 1978, are planted in deep clay gravel soils, laid down by ancient, long melted glaciers. These kaolinitic clay soils have a naturally low fertility and a sandy loam topsoil with an ever expanding organic matter content. With mountain ranges to the east, south and west providing a rain shadow effect, and Tasman Bay to the north ensuring a maritime climate, our home plantings spill down a gentle north-facing slope overlooking a side branch of the Moutere Valley. Nelson often has the highest sunshine hours in the country; summer growing months are warm and relatively dry, with the possibility of rain increasing towards autumn.
