Felton Road wines are stunning. Their Pinot Noir is exceptional. The Vineyard is only open for tastings in the afternoon, but the quality of this Central Otago wine is exceptional. I thoroughly recommend this vineyard to anyone who loves Pinot Noir.

It is a pleasure visiting some of the smaller vineyards, and have learned a lot about their wines so much so that will now make a point of looking for them. I tasted their Pino Noir - the Pinot Block 3 was my favourite. I was persuaded to try their Reisling and was extremely impressed as am not usually a... More

The wines truly are as good as the reverence they get from wine writers all around the world but what I love more than anything was the humility Blair Walter and his team have for their beautiful piece of land in Bannockburn. The wines simply reflect that respect and harmony. The Pinot Noir was naturally outstanding, the Block 3 transcendent... More

I had wanted to visit this cellar door as I knew Felton produced magnificent Pinot Noirs. And it is true! Lovely small cellar door with great views. The bannockburn 2014 is definitely one of my favourites of all the Pinots we tasted over the last 3 days. Great for drinking now or the next couple of years if you like... More

The two highest ranked wineries in this area are Felton Road and Mt Difficulty. We were extremely well received at both wineries for a tasting of the full range of their wines. At Felton Road we also had a private guided tour of the winery. It was a very interesting and pleasant moment. The views from up there are magnificent.... More

One of the best wineries in the area. A lovely spot with very nice staff and excellent wine. It's all about the wine so if you are after anything else you will probably be disappointed, so go for the wine and enjoy!

If you like central outage pinot noir - then a visit here is a necessity. Restricted opening times though so check. Lovely wine, lovely location and helpful informative service.

A visit to Felton Road winery's cellar door is a trip to the holy grail of NZ wine. Make no mistake Felton Road is a World class & recognised winery of the highest standard, from their bio dynamic farming practices to the amazing terroir that shines in every glass of their wine! Only open from 2pm to 5pm it is... More

A very kind sommeliér took care of us, and spoke about Felton Road's biodynamic views. It was something good to listening. Unfortunately the Pinot Gris '11 was oxidized. Chardonnay '11 had very rich vanilla and skin smell. In the Pinot Noir '11 lots of cherry, pepper, spiciness. Bad luck, but the alcohol spiked on the Pinot Noir '10. Sweet Riesling... More

A drive out to Bannockburn needs to include a stop at Felton Road with their great wines and friendly service.
