Crazy By Nature

Crazy By Nature, that's just what this planet needs

"In 1984 they thought we were crazy to grow our grapes organically. We’ve spent the last twenty-five years proving that they were right! Now, it seems everybody wants to be crazy, and that’s just what this planet needs. Crazy by Nature – makes perfect sense.
We’ve learnt that if you are kind to Nature she will always repay you, with quality. We don’t use herbicides, insecticides, systemic fungicides or soluble fertilisers. We try and build a balance. To create harmony so that there will be no place for 'dis-ease'."

"As the first winegrowers in the Southern Hemisphere to practice the use of biodynamic techniques in the vineyard and cellar, our practices include working with the sun, stars, planets and moon as well using special animal, mineral and herbal preparations that enhance the life (bio) energy (dynamic) of all living things on our farm. This may seem as crazy as a lunatic on a full moon but it makes us happy and even more enthusiastic as each season commences." James Millton

It’s no secret that the best bottle of wine is made of grapes from a vine that has been grown with sensitivity to the environment.

2015 Crazy By Nature Shotberry Chardonnay

Made in a fruit forward style with the freshness of an ocean breeze and the texture of fine silt loam. A glass of Gisborne Sunshine! 

2014 Crazy By Nature Cosmo Red

A blend of Malbec, Syrah and Viognier, joined with the supple embrace of Merlot. Dark and brooding as a late night kiss, with a lifted spice, tingling aromas quite unique to this wine and its own natural surroundings. The taste is dense but still alive, mint, chocolate, Asian spice, and warmth of feather pillow for a fatigued head.
