What does “Appellation” mean?
An Appellation is used to identify where wine grapes are grown and define how wine was produced. The more specific the region the wine comes from, the better the reputation of the wine.

Which wine and grape varieties are popular in Central Otago vineyards?
Interestingly, an important step in the development of the Central Otago wine region was the realisation that classical French and German grape varieties also suited the Central Otago terrain, climate and soils. The principal grape varieties of Central Otago are Pinot Noir, Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay – all of which produce excellent wines.
Which season is best for wine tours?
We operate all year round; fully appreciating Central Otago’s four stunning seasons. Though the weather does tend to be warmest and driest during the summer months, the spectacular colours of autumn and the snow-capped landscapes of winter are a sight not to be missed. Spring days tend to be crisp but lovely, with the remains of the winter snow still on the mountains, and the spring flowers coming into bloom. Who could choose?
