Vintec Club Podcast: collect the greatest wine producers from across the globe 🍷
Our *first international winemake*r in the *Vintec Club Podcast*. Originally *from New Zealand*, winemaker *Paul Pujol* has always been drawn to the Pinot Noirs and aromatic whites of France. He joined *Prophet’s Rock*, a *Central Otago* winery, after a six-year around the world odyssey (Alsace, Sancerre & Oregon among others) chasing these varietals, travels palpable in the wines he makes today.
His traditional aesthetic — respectful, patient, vineyard-focused — resonates in his wines, and frees them to* express the unique tenor of the sites*.
His winemaking is a *sensitive, site-driven, and empathic approach* which aims to express the *beauty of the place* rather than pronounced winemaking characters.
