A beguiling, beautiful snapshot of Central Otago wine – its history, its distinction, and the people who have made it all happen.

From humble beginnings in the 1980s, the Central Otago wine industry has grown into a major calling card for the region and New Zealand. Set within a magnificent landscape, many of the vineyards and their wineries have themselves become thriving tourist attractions.

The Vineyards of Central Otago tells the enchanting tale of the people who risked it all to capture the Pinot dream: the vineyard developers and owners, the viticulturists and winemakers. From diverse countries and backgrounds, they have all shared a passion for Central Otago and a belief in its one-of-a-kind wine-growing potential.

Full of colour and character, and celebrating the very best of Kiwi endeavour, The Vineyards of Central Otago is a visually stunning showcase, and a must-have for anyone who’s ever fallen under the Pinot spell.
