“The right land is the single most important factor in growing great wine.”
Grasshopper Rock is a small Central Otago wine producer, dedicated exclusively to the production of first class, single vineyard Pinot Noir. In establishing the vineyard, the owners searched for land that would provide the best conditions for consistently producing a premium Pinot Noir in a elegant Central Otago style.
The vineyard is situated on Earnscleugh Road, across the Clutha River from Alexandra. The site enjoys high sunshine hours and high mean temperatures and is sufficiently harsh and difficult to make the vines work their hardest. With extremes of heat and cold comes the risk of spring and autumn frosts, providing a demanding but rewarding environment for the production of premium pinot noir.
At Grasshopper Rock, their passion is Pinot Noir and they are fortunate to work with people who strive for excellence, working with the best raw materials and managing them to the best of their ability. Grasshopper Rock is a unique combination of land, climate, vines and people. To find out more about Grasshopper Rock and purchase their Pinot Noir click the banner above and visit their website.
