Neck of The Woods


‘Neck of the Woods’ is the wine brand of AJ Johnson, a television industry man who started his wine journey in the vineyard and working with the wine at Mountford in North Canterbury. AJ flitted between wine and television for around 15 years, before he decided to start his own brand. His model is as a negociant as AJ does not own vineyards, but has good relationships with specialty growers in Central Otago, Hawke’s Bay and Marlborough. The first release was the 2016 Gibbston Pinot Noir. Jen Parr crafted the below range.


  • Neck of the Woods Pinot Gris 2019, Central Otago
  • Neck of the Woods Orange 2019, Central Otago
  • Neck of the Woods Chardonnay 2018, Hawkes Bay
  • Neck of the Woods Pinot Noir 2018, Central Otago
