Central Otago

Central Otago, the world’s most southerly wine producing region, is steeped in the history of miners searching for gold from the 1860s onwards. Fine wine, and especially Pinot Noir, is the new gold in this region of New Zealand, known as a centre for adventure sports. The past decade has seen rapid expansion in the fledgling Central Otago wine industry, founded on the successes of a small number of vineyards developed in the latter two decades of the 20th century. While the area planted is still small on the world stage, Central Otago now stands in its own right as a serious and credible wine region, producing some of the finest Pinot Noir in the world.
