About Goldschmidt Vineyards:

Yolyn and Nick Goldschmidt are owners/vintners, and Nick is the winemaker. While the winery offices are located in Healdsburg, California; the Goldschmidt Vineyard label is a program designed to showcase single vineyard source wines from both the Alexander Valley and Napa Valley Oakville appellations. Their goal is create wines that highlight the distinct characters, benefits and attributes derived from these site specific harvests. Joined periodically in the field by their five children, the Goldschmidt expertise is being passed down to the next generation. Learn more about the family business here.

“Winemaking has been a passion that has fueled our dreams and enriched our lives. Even our children have become involved, whether by pitching in during harvest and crush or by helping pack “dad’s” bags as I head off to New Zealand and Argentina several times a year” – Nick Goldschmidt

About Spy Valley Wines:

Owned and operated by the Johnson Family, Spy Valley Wines is one of Marlborough’s few remaining 100% Kiwi family owned wine companies. Located up the road from a US government listening post (the spy base), Spy Valley is known around the world as one of New Zealand’s most acclaimed producers. The Johnson Family established the first of their 380 acres of estate vineyards in 1993. Pioneering what was then a Marlborough sub-region, the Johnsons’ Lower Waihopai development continued, with the fruit being grown and sold to other wine companies. In 2000, the first vintage under the Spy Valley label was released. With a modern, fully integrated winemaking facility and a passion for excellence, Spy Valley consistently produces globally acclaimed award winning wines. Like most Marlborough wineries, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc are Spy Valley specialties but Chief Winemaker and aromatic fanatic Wendy Stuckey and her team, have set a benchmark for New Zealand aromatic whites.

Sustainability:

“When you work land as exceptional as this, you protect it. Here at Spy Valley, we know that our environment is one of the many secrets to our success. It has sustained generations, and it is our job to nurture it for many more.” – Spy Valley Wines

Since they began, Spy Valley Wines has been accredited under the New Zealand Sustainable Wine-growing scheme. This initiative promotes economically and environmentally sustainable vineyard management. For Spy Valley Wines, this includes their winery, all of their company vineyards and their grower vineyards.
