Charting The Rise Of Charteris

PJ for blog“No matter what the variety, what the style, PJ has already been there and done it,” writes James Halliday of one of the two protagonists of Central Otago’s Charteris. The other half of this trans-Tasman love story is PJ’s wife, Christina Pattison. The couple met at Brokenwood, the iconic Hunter Valley estate where PJ spent 12 fateful and rewarding years. In 2015, CellarHand had the honour of welcoming Charteris and its superb wines to our portfolio. By this time, of course, PJ had become something of a legend of the Australian wine scene, and he and Chrissi had turned the fantasy of owning their own site and label into an irresistible reality.
