Giusepp Valli emigrated from an Italian winemaking background to New Zealand in the 1870s. Five generations later, great-grandsons Grant Taylor and Tim Valli continue the tradition.
Valli produces premium quality Pinot Noir displaying the variety of characters found in Otago's sub-regions. The Waitaki Valley is New Zealand's newest wine growing region. Located inland North Otago on limestone soils, this wine shows the Waitaki is already producing complex savoury Pinot Noirs that reflect their region.
