Overview

The Wooing Tree is a local landmark that sits prominently in the middle of our family vineyard. It has long been a place for locals to woo their lovers, and if it could talk, would have many a story to tell! These days it is not quite the private spot it once was...but we still have plenty of visitors proposing marriage and even getting married under our beautiful iconic tree, amidst the vines. Central Otago enjoys a perfect climate for producing beguiling Pinot Noir. Our single vineyard site is located in the very heart of the region, in the town of Cromwell, opposite the 'Big Fruit Sculpture'. Come and visit! You'll discover why we specialise in making Pinot with Passion...

My partner & I called in for a tasting & purchase of wines. It is in a beautiful relaxed setting, & because it was off-season we were able to have a personal tasting with our friendly & knowledgable hostess. Lovely wine & a lovely experience....More

First time I visited Wooing Tree vineyard was in 2010. They have one of the best pinot noir wines in NZ. The reserve is pricy but worth the money.
