Neudorf Vineyards is located in the Nelson region of New Zealand. Founded in 1978 by Judy and Tim Finn, they employ winemaker Todd Stevens, assistant winemaker Simon McGuire and viticulturalist Richard Flatman. The winery was built in 1980 and remodeled in 2004. The wines are made from fruit harvested from two Nelson subappellations, Moutere Hills and Brightwater. In Moutere, production from the family’s two estate vineyards Neudorf Home Block (22 acres) and Hill Block (13 acres) is supplemented with grapes from three parcels that are farmed by the family: Pomona (3 acres); Kina (2 acres) and Flaxmore (8 acres). Moutere is one of the sunniest appellations in the country and its soils are composed of welldraining clay with sandy loam top soils. Brightwater is south of Nelson and planted on the stony alluvial soils of the Waimea plains. Its terroir is particularly suited to growing Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Pinot Gris. Neudorf Vineyards is a founding member of the New Zealand Sustainable Viticulture. In 2010, they completed the conversion to organic farming of the Rosedale and Home Block Vineyard.
