Aroha Wine

Mt Difficulty are a Bannockburn based winery that have been running since the early 1990’s. The owners of five newly planted vineyards in Bannockburn decided to work together, calling their alliance Mt Difficulty after the large mountain that overlooks the Cromwell Basin.

Shelter from the mountain create a special micro-climate for Bannockburn. The vines enjoy hot summers, a large diurnal temperature variation and long cool autumns; conditions which bring the best out of the Pinot Noir grapes. 

Winemaker Matt Dicey came on board in 1998, and has now completed his 22nd vintage, expanding to aromatic white varieties and single vineyard expressions, yet always retaining Mt Difficulty’s signature style.
