Thompson, formerly viticulturist with Mission Estate Winery in Hawke’s Bay, is a previous winner of the national Young Viticulturist award and the over-arching New Zealand Young Horticulturist competition.
With a strong expertise in organic grape growing, and a soon to be completed MBA under his belt, Thompson, will be working closely with owners, Mike and Claudia Weersing to raise the profile of the biodynamically-managed vineyards and the select range of wines, both nationally and internationally.
Further strength is added to the Pyramid winemaking team by Brittany Thompson, formerly of Elephant Hill Winery, Hawke’s Bay. She brings significant international experience from cult producers such as Screaming Eagle and Dalla Valle in the Napa Valley of California, where she worked with consultant winemaker, Andy Erickson.
