Chard Farm Valierian Nov12

It's very Valerian on the Farm!

It's that gorgeous time of the year on the farm when our valerian is in full flower. Valerian is a Central Otago wild flower – it seems to thrive in our harsh environment and produces very intense colours.  This intense colouring is thought to be due to a combination of our highish UV light and mild continental climate – with cool nights and warm days.  Whatever it is… there’s a riot of colour out here on the farm…


no. 1 on Halliday's bucket list

Check out the latest edition of Hallidays Wine companion. We are very honoured and humbled to be rated no.1 of his 99 Great Wine Experiences – “The bucket list of great wine experiences every wine lover should put on their wishlist of things to do before they die”!  Think we better get the trumpet out…(maybe a bottle of Veuve as well)…..
