The colours of Central - 30 Mar 14

Domain Road Vineyard - The colours of Central - <p></p>

Gold and Black - are the colours of Central as harvest time approaches, with the black nets and ripening grapes of the vineyard in stark contrast to the gold of the hills behind it.  Bannockburn - the "heart of the desert" has long been associated with gold - from the gold mining days of the past to the gold medal wines of today.  The grapes at Domain Road are looking great and harvest is about to begin - the first step on the way to another gold we hope for our Pinot Noir - something we have achieved consistently since our first vintage in 2006.  Black and gold - a winning combination!

Wine, walnuts and a warm welcome await people visiting the tasting room at the vineyard.

Opening regularly for the first time this summer has meant that over 800 people from New Zealand and around the world have been able to enjoy wine tasting under the shade of two old walnut trees.  After a rapturous greeting from Lucy (Graeme and Gillian's dog and our 'face' on Facebook) visitors have the opportunity to sample our range of wines whilst relaxing and enjoying the Central Otago sunshine in this magical place.  No small wonder one of our wines is called 'Paradise'!
