Back at The Galez’ House, they are going to have their traditional Christmas log “Buche de Noel”. A
Lawson’s Dry hills, a sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand and Appellation Marlborough Wine (AMW) certified winery, shares with us their latest spring update.
Well, we think so. You might have heard about how much rain we have had here – roads became rivers and rivers became torrents. Many vineyards were underwater and there has been much damage to local roads and property.
Lawson’s Dry Hills has come through quite well but like everyone else, we will be glad to see a bit more sunshine!
VINES IN BUD
Although only just out of winter, the vines are starting to bud and we have to get through the worrying period of spring frosts.
Our Chaytors Road Chardonnay (above) is quite advanced which is a concern, while the Gewurztraminer (left) around the winery is also showing budburst.
AMW (Appellation Marlborough Wine)
Appellation Marlborough Wine continues to grow in importance and we have certified our 2022 Estate, Reserve and Blind River Sauvignon Blancs.
FIELD DAY AT LAWSON’S DRY HILLS
After receiving the wine industry category sustainability award from the Cawthron Institute last year, we held a Field Day to share our journey to carbon zero. We have been asked to present at a
number of events both locally and online, as New Zealand’s leading, accredited sustainable and carbon zero wine producer.
TWO LAWSON’S DRY HILLS WINES SELECTED!
After a blind tasting of 60 AMW certified Sauvignon Blancs by Emma Jenkins MW, Cameron Douglas MS and wine buyer and MW student Liz Wheadon, both our Blind River 2022 and Reserve 2022 were chosen for the final selection of 12 wines.
Both Blind River Sauvignon Blanc and our Reserve Pinot Noir have been selected for business class on board Qatar Airways!
