In 2021, Tom, Anne, David and Lana released their first wine called Test Pots, a Pinot Noir from Central Otago. Their eclectic backgrounds in wine, hospitality and agriculture has culminated in this project, producing the kind of lively, energetic wines that they love to drink.

Tom and Anne live in Cromwell, Central Otago. David and Lana live in Christchurch near North Canterbury. Their ‘23 offering will include releases from Central Otago, Waipara, plus a special cuveé from Austria. The fruit is sourced from family owned and operated vineyards who are both certified and practising organic.  

Their exposure to energetic and thought-provoking natural wines coined the phrase “15 Minute Bottle,” which represents their collective ethos towards drinking wine, where a bottle is shared around a table, inspiring conversation, conviviality and connection.
