DOZEN MEAN TO SAY…

Cuisine - - WINE FEATURE / WINE NEWS -

The 12 an­nual lu­nar cy­cles, the 12 apos­tles, the 12 bot­tles that make up a case… there was plenty of talk about the spe­cial magic and mean­ing of a dozen when the wine col­lec­tive known as the Fam­ily of Twelve was founded in 2005. That is now ex­actly 12 years ago. Dur­ing that time the group of 12 qual­ity-driven Kiwi winer­ies, all fam­ily-owned, has kept to its orig­i­nal brand line-up and true to its found­ing beliefs, above all the cham­pi­oning of wines of qual­ity and in­di­vid­u­al­ity. Says Judy Finn of Neu­dorf: “The Fam­ily of Twelve has taught me the value of good, old-fash­ioned ca­ma­raderie. You can ring any­one in the group about any­thing and get a com­pletely hon­est an­swer… no mar­ket­ing push. Some­times I think we don’t ap­pre­ci­ate how good it is.”
