We visited 7 wineries yesterday and this was easily the highlight of the day. We made an appointment and received an incredible welcome which surpassed the experience what others were offering. The building is undergoing renovations which made us lucky enough to taste in their wine library which was a great touch! The wines are consistently brilliant and I will... More

You can't come to Central Otago without visiting Felton Road. They really are one of the leaders of the world in producing pinot noirs. They also do great chardonnays, but only alright rieslings in my opinion (didn't even know they did rieslings till I visited the cellar door). If you want their even more premo wines, then unfortunately there's a... More

This is the iconic vineyard in this area. They do superb Pinot Noir and Riesling. While it is not the cheapest wine you will find, the quality is exceptional and that quality comes at a price. Always worth having some in the cellar. Great service (as usual) on this visit.

Sometimes going to a winery can be a bit daunting as they can be a bit hoity toity and not so friendly. Not here though. As per, we had our midgets with us and we set them up in the corner of the tasting room with a box of toys & they played happily whilst we enjoyed our tasting. The... More

Recent visit to NZ included a visit to Felton Road. I have had their wines in the US and was very pleased to try them in their home country. They did not disappoint. Its a bit of a drive from Queenstown, but a beautiful drive.

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
