In August 2013, Daniele Alemagna, seduced by the idyllic landscape of the Te Muna valley, decided to buy this beautiful established vineyard. He was determined to combine his passion and commitment. His aim was also to introduce to his children his strong work ethic and passion for the land. Indeed, the vineyard exists for the next generation.
Simone, a young Italian winemaker and viticulturist from Piedmont north-west Italy, decided in 2012 after his studies, to travel and discover a new wine world. He worked for different wineries in Wairarapa and has been involved with Daniele in the project of Pond Paddock. He daily manages the vineyard where the wine is made with passion.
