Central Otago is a central wine region on the South Island of New Zealand. The cultivation of vines in Central Otago started around fifties. But it was not until 1980 that production was safe enough to begin to be marketed.
Central Otago production remained modest until the mid-1990s, when the industry began to grow rapidly.
The pinot noir grape is the most widely grown in Central Otago, it is estimated that 70 percent of the wine culture is dedicated to this varietal. There then remains the Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay or Riesling. The climate of Central Otago is very good. It is continental and the area is protected by high mountains.
