About Domaine Thomson

The Domaine Thomson winery has adopted a responsible and sustainable approach to winemaking. The winery is in Central Otago, New Zealand. The Thompson family bought the lands at the beginning of the 2000’s and converted them into a sustainable vineyard.

In the middle of 1800, John Turnbull Thomson founded a winery dubbed the Domaine Thomson. It was farmed and grazed on until around early 2000 when it was bought by the present owner, the Thomson family who has been converting it into a vineyard.

The Thomson family who subsequently bought the farm worked to turn it into a viable vineyard. In their effort to minimise the impacts of the winemaking process on the earth, they adopted ecological measures like organic pest control as well as composting.

Domaine Thomson Winery is environmentally conscious and employs several ways in minimising its influence on nature. Some of the major tools involve using organic fertiliser from composting and others. Winery also employs natural pest control measures like planting cover crops that attract good insects and also use pheromone traps to hinder the coupling cycles of destructive animals.

The winery also employs eco-friendly methods of production during winemaking. Some of them generate their own electricity using solar power and recycle their production waters among other things.

Domaine Thomson Winery’s vineyards are located in three main areas in Central Otago, they include Lowburn, Parkburn, and Cromwell. Every site has its microclimate suitable for various grapes. This is a large area with an excess of about 100 hectares where green agriculture becomes possible.
