Welcome to the world of Northfield Wines! A place that is dedicated to people who love wine and to people seeking an insider's glimpse into everything that is wonderful about living in Wine Country.

Our wine country adventure began ten years ago with little else than a love of wine. We had found an ideal property in the beautiful Waipara Valley north of Christchurch on New Zealand's South Island. At that time there was a whisper Waipara was about to take off as New Zealand's fastest growing wine region and planting a vineyard seemed like the perfect idea.

Fast forward to early 2006. We were having such a great time with everything we've experienced starting our wine business in Waipara that we knew we wanted to expand our operation to our other home, California. We both have friends and family in New Zealand and North America and wanted to be able to share our love of making wine in both countries.

We found the perfect small vineyard in the Napa Valley. It was in need of some TLC but we have spent several years restoring the vines and vineyard infrastructure including a small number of replants.

In Waipara and in Napa we have found all of the things we love the most--a challenging and fun new business to which we can devote our energy, great times together with friends and family, regions that are world renowned for their production of fabulous food and wine. To top it off they are both surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the world--bordered by mountains--the Sierras and Southern Alps for skiing in winter and the Pacific Ocean for fishing and sailing in summer (though they are on the opposite side!)

Building a vineyard and starting a wine business is a fantasy shared by many. We have been lucky to have the advice and encouragement of many people as we started out--our family and friends, fellow wine growers in our Waipara community and throughout the New Zealand wine industry, as well as all the wine industry resources available in California. Thanks to everyone who has helped us along the way on this incredible adventure and welcome to those of you who are just joining us--it's going to be a great journey!

One of the things we love about both Napa & Waipara is there are the many unique things to do in each area! These trains have been restored to their former glory and offer a great way for visitors to see wine country.
