Harwood Hall is the result of a collaboration between two old workmates, Digger (Bill) Hennessy and Corey Hall. Digger met Corey when both men worked for Matua Valley "Harwood was my father-in-law's middle name".
Hennessy could have led to problems, as it's the name of a very prominent French cognac.
The Harwood Hall wines are crafted by hand in small quantities from the best fruit the guys can get their hands on - off their own or their mates vineyards and at a very sharp price. In choosing Harwood Hall: they are being looked after by not one but two of the country's best winemakers.
The wines are crafted from experience; know how, hard work, the support of their winemaking community and from a passion for making the best wine they can. Corey Hall learnt how to make wines that can age in Burgundy.
This wine will compliment a wide range of dishes. Enjoy it with Foie Gras, Steaks, BBQ and even thanks for it elegance, even with poultry.
