"Jen Parr from Valli Vineyards has been awarded Gourmet Traveller WINE’s 2020 NZ Winemaker of the Year."

 

Grant Taylor is as important to New Zealand winemaking as Freddie Mercury was to the music industry. Grant has produced the first vintages for many of the region’s most reputable wineries including Felton Road, Mt Difficulty, Bald Hills, Mount Edward, Carrick, Hawkshead, Mondillo, Perrigrine, Rockburn (aka Hay’s Lake). His accomplishments also include winning the Best Pinot Noir Trophy at the International Wine Competition an unprecedented three times – a feat achieved by no other winemaker in the world…

Since 1998 Grant has been a winemaker at one of New Zealand’s undisputed super-stars, Valli Vineyards, which has enjoyed an unparalleled level of success. Many believe (as we firmly do) Valli Vineyards produce consistently better wines than Felton Road. We acknowledge Felton Road enjoys the No:1 position however, many believe this is purely down to marketing and previous successes.

The aim at Valli is to produce single vineyard wines, which express their unique character of each Otago sub-region with clarity and absolute purity. Four distinctive Pinot Noirs are bottled under the following labels - Gibbston, Bannockburn, Bendigo and the newest on the map, Waitaki.

Fellow winemaker Jen Parr from Valli, has recently been awarded 'Gourmet Traveller WINE’s 2020 NZ Winemaker of the Year' who had the following to say about her, "Winemaker at Central Otago’s Valli Wines and consultant winemaker for several other producers, Jen is a deserving winner. She is driven by enthusiasm, asks questions and tests the answers, and her passion for pinot noir is inspiring. “Pinot noir may flirt with your senses but it has the power to really engage the mind,” she says. “I guess you might say it is a grape for intellectual hedonists!” In the words of Bob Campbell MW, she is one of New Zealand’s “most promising young winemakers.” Congratulations, Jen"
