New Zealand is a young wine country, and Central Otago on the South Island is even younger. It is also a spectacularly beautiful region where you find superb wines from the tricky pinot noir. One of the pioneers here, and also one of the most famous wine estates in New Zealand, is Felton Road.

For the pinot noir lover, it is certainly worthwhile looking for wines from Central Otago. The fortune-hunters from the gold mining era of the mid-1800s have been replaced by ambitious and just as adventurous winemakers.

Read more on this producer, including a video with the winemaker in the vineyard, in Britt’s article on BKWine Magazine: Felton Road: quality Pinot Noir from Central Otago, New Zealand | Britt on Forbes.
