Founded in 1993, when restauranteur Russell Black planted an 8 hectare Pinot Noir/Chardonnay vineyard in Omihi, Black Estate has evoked into an organic and biodynamic winery in North Canterbury, New Zealand. Now owned by the Naish family, duo Penelope and Nicholas make wines true to their sites, made without any chemical residues.
This winery has three organic hillside vineyards in Waipara, North Canterbury. The vineyards lie within 10km of each other with clay limestone soils.
As Jamie Goode so perfectly said: “In a relatively short space of time, they have turned their project into one of the very top producers in the region. The Black Estate wines are superb all across the board’
