Northfield Wines Napa and Waipara The vineyard is named for a local landmark; a rock outcropping located a few miles from us on the road to Hanmer Hot Springs. Here's a picture of the famous frog.

Frog Rock Vineyard was once part of a large sheep station so the vineyard was developed from bare land. We have installed a post and wire trellising system that trains the vine foliage upwards vertically above the fruit to maximize the amount of sunlight that the vines can absorb, and to allow good airflow down around the fruit bunches. Rows run north to south to equalize the amount of sunlight that hits each side of the vines.

The vineyard is now about 2.5 acres each of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon and is at full production. 2011 harvest was April/May 2011.
