The Mt Difficulty brand started in 1998 with a very small production of Pinot noir and Chardonnay. This Pinot noir went on to win a Gold medal at the 1999 Air New Zealand wine awards, with the Chardonnay attaining Silver.

The initial joint venture has grown into a leading New Zealand boutique winery with export markets in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and Singapore, with the rest of the world to come!
