Dancing Water and Floating Mountain


Dancing Water is the new winegrowing venture in the Waipara Valley of winemaker Ross Trowsdale and his partner Clare Bisso, who have acquired some of the oldest vines in the region, and over last four years have brought their ‘Tier Garden' vineyard and winery to BioGro certified organic status. Trowsdale and Bisso also operate the Floating Mountain brand which utilises fruit from selected growers and sites, including the ‘Floating Mountain' vineyard that was established by Mark Rattray. Ross and Clare drink widely and are open-minded with wine styles around the world. A non-interventionist approach is taken with the winemaking. The wines give more than a nod to those of Europe and are built with challenging complexities for those more familiar with local styles. The wines have received positive acclaim internationally. www.dancingwater.co.nzwww.floatingmountain.com
