Our winemaker Andy Anderson ensured that Takapoto Estate made a huge splash on the international stage in 2017-18

Anderson was awarded the world’s best Pinot Noir trophy at London’s prestigious International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) two years running.

His wines won back-to-back in 2017 for the 2012 Takapoto Bannockburn Single Vineyard Pinot Noir and in 2018 for the Takapoto Gibbston Valley.

2017 was a truly monumental year for Andy and Takapoto wines - not only did he take out best Pinot Noir honour but he added the New Zealand Producer of the Year trophy and the outstanding Gold Medal for the 2014 vintage of the Takapoto Pinot Noir.

These wins across two years at the world's most prestigious wine awards are a remarkable groundbreaking effort and a true testament to Andy's dedication and expertise, as well as the outstanding quality of wine being produced.
