Paving the way for New Zealand past, present and future
Felton Road has led the dynamics of Central Otago and continues to help define what it means to make truly great wine in New Zealand's north facing glacial slopes.
This modern gravity fed winery utilises wild yeasts and its practice of biodynamics are only some of the defining features of this esteemed estate.
Situated in Bannockburn this five star winery is top of the food chain when it comes to its well deserving reputation for quality and internationally recognised fine wines.
Under the direction of Blair Walters, the Felton Road’s Pinot Noir tale is nothing short of remarkable. 100% estate grown fruit is fermented in open top tanks using a percentage of whole bunches that changes depending on vintage and matured in barrel for 12-16 months of only a small proportion is new. The wines are distinctly a representation of the unique microclimate of Central Otago and framed in a kiwi culture of respect and tradition.
Felton Road is and continues to raise the bar for Pinot Noir globally and has firmly placed Central Otago on the map for some of the finest wine the world has ever seen.
