Davishon vineyard is situated at Airport Road on the Dunstan Flats between Alexandra and Clyde and is owned by David and Shona Garry.
Grapes have been grown on the Dunstan Flats for 130 years and Davishon is only a short distance from Monte Christo, where Jean Feraud produced the first Central Otago wines in the 1860's.
The first vineyard plantings at Davishon were the main block in 1992, with the next two blocks being planted 1996. After experimenting with 10/5, 2/10, and clone 13 & 5 pinot noir clones, the new blocks have been planted with Davis 5 (Pommard) and Dijon clone 115. These are starting to produce exciting results. The 3.5 hectare vineyard is now 70% Pinot Noir, 20% Pinot Gris and the remainder Chardonnay.
