About Mt Difficulty Wines

The Mt Difficulty story begins with a handshake. The early 90s saw the owners of five newly planted vineyards in Bannockburn, come together to produce wine under one label. They called themselves the "Gang of Four." The first vintage produced under the Mt Difficulty label was 1998. Today they are comprised of many vineyards that span Central Otago, from Gibbston to Lowburn to Bendigo. The focus is on Pinot noir and Chardonnay, but Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris are also produced. Recently, Mt Difficulty have begun experimental plantings of Chenin Blanc and Syrah too. Under the experienced guidance of Winemaker Matt Dicey, this winery continues to turn out incredible wines that are the ultimate expression of Central Otago, year after year.
