Q Wine from Waitaki Valley

05-Jul-2012

The Levet family were pioneers in commercial viticulture back in 1863. Great-great grandson Jules Stephan has picked up on his history by establishing ‘Q Wine' by planting a 5.5 ha vineyard on Grants Road in the Waitaki Valley in 2005. The site is planted 70% to Pinot Gris and 30% Pinot Noir, the two varieties that seem to be particularly to the limestone-influenced soils of this new vignoble in North Otago. Jules has contracted the viticultural services of Tim Deaker and the winemaking is by Antony Worch and Grant Taylor, bottling his own wine since 2010. Jules is beginning to sell his wine directly to select restaurants in Auckland and to specialist wine shops.
