Two Paddocks Enters Asian Market

Asian market Actor Sam Neill has been busy promoting his Two Paddocks vineyard in Hong Kong, but has dismissed any suggestion of a major expansion into China. “We’re a boutique winery. I think if we started expanding into China we’d be swallowed up in a minute,” he said in the Washington Post. Instead Neill’s range of premium wines will be sold exclusively through an organic food store in central Hong Kong. Two Paddocks is located in Central Otago and produces just 3,000 cases of wine a year.
