Only 3.5 hectares, French Peak is the oldest vineyard in Banks Peninsula and has a unique terrior as it is based in the centre of an extinct volcano. The top of the vineyard is at an altitude of 80m high and only 700m from the sea. It has been run organically since 2016 and is currently going through BioGro certification. French Peak Pinot Noir is added to our NZ First, Hector’s French Farm Petit Pinot Gin.
