Pyramid valley - wine that breathes of its place. The Pyramid Valley story begins in a magical place where magnificent native birds once roamed and soared, where the earth produces in abundance and the stars align for greatness. This is not a mythical place. It is real and is home to some of the most profound Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines in the world.
Pyramid Valley is located in the North Canterbury region in the South Island of New Zealand.
