VALLI is the creation of pioneering Otago winemaker Grant Taylor. Having crafted wines in Otago since 1993, Grant founded VALLI in 1998 to create single-vineyard wines highlighting the different characteristics of Otago’s sub-regions: Gibbston, Bannockburn, and Bendigo in Central Otago and the Waitaki Valley in North Otago. In 2015, established Otago winemaker Jen Parr joined Grant in the winery where the pair aims to create wines with honesty, integrity, and most importantly, a sense of place. When you drink a VALLI wine, you are enjoying more than just a wine:
Our wines can be tasted next door to our Gibbston vineyard at Kinross. A finalist for NZ Cellar door of the Year, Kinross act as a Cellar Door and Tasting Room for Valli as well as a few other boutique wineries. Valli-specific tastings are available upon request, for which advance notice is always well-received.
