Most are wineries we have represented since we established Village Cellars, and many of their children at that time are now the next generation and actively involved in the business. In this catalogue’s interview with winemakers, we talked with Todd Stevens at Neudorf, a pioneering winery in Nelson, New Zealand, where Todd joined the founder and winemaker Tim Finn. He talks about the subtle challenges involved in ‘generational change’ in taking over from a legend of the local and national wine industry, and gradually assuming control of the winemaking from Tim. From Oregon, Yoshiji Sato concludes his two-part article on the second generation in the family-owned business at The Eyrie Vineyards, and the changes Jason Lett has made in following up the pioneering spirit and wines of his father David Lett. Yoshiji’s insights deepen our understanding of what the process of generational change involves in a constantly changing winemaking environment, and how it includes both the evolution of winemaking and the business as they mature.One of the most striking trends from our visit to Australia in March was that many young producers are focusing on Pinot Gris and Grenache. Grenache, in particular, is being viewed as a soft tannin alternative to Pinot Noir in warmer areas like the Barossa Valley. Kym Teusner, who launched the Teusner Wines in the Barossa Valley, has always loved Grenache and is making great wines with this varietal. Grenache is a variety that is widely grown around the world, most often as a blending wine, so it has few opportunities to be in the spotlight. We have rectied that with a page on Grenache, with a tasting of four wines selected by sommelier Taku Igaru, who explores his keyword ‘silky.’ Our New Zealand Campaign promotion is starting in June. Around this time every year we release a new vintage from Felton Road, and we have taken the opportunity to compare four vintages of their Bannockburn Pinot Noir from 2014 through to the current release from 2017. To enhance your enjoyment of the rich pleasures of these Pinot Noirs, we have included a vintage report and tasting notes for each year.Village Cellars
