Wine will keep flowing in Judgeford after resident Terry Doran received a flood of interest in his 800 Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vines.

As we reported on November 20, Mr Doran had been considering tearing out his eight-year-old boutique vineyard because he lacks the time to tend to it, but he got at least 50 calls from prospective winemakers after the article was published.

He decided to hand the vineyard over to a man from Paremata who had helped him trim the vines five years ago.

The man has spent a year studying horticulture at Lincoln University, belongs to a wine club and has a keen interest in viticulture, Mr Doran says.
