Region Central Otago

Central Otago, located at the southern end of the South Island of New Zealand, is the world’s most southerly wine region. In a short amount of time, the area has established itself as a world-class region for Pinot Noir. The picturesque region is surrounded by mountains ensuring a cool semi-continental climate that experiences a large diurnal range contributing to the creation of intensely concentrated wines with perfume, and complexity. Central Otago’s vineyard area is divided into six distinct sub regions each with their own climate and wine style. Best known for producing intensely Fruity medium to full bodied Pinot Noir, Central Otago’s cool climate also produces outstanding Riesling as well as superb bottle-fermented Sparkling wines.


One of the most picturesque vineyards in NZ, Rippon is owned by Rolfe and Louis Mills and their winemaker son Nick. The vineyards slope gently down to the scenically spectacular banks of pristine Lake Wanaka in Central Otago. This is a cool continental climate, tempered by Lake Wanaka which helps to moderate temperatures and alleviate frost concerns. Rippon’s 15 ha of vineyards are predominantly on their own roots, situated on a north-facing escarpment, anchored on a mixture of coarse schist based gravels. Since 2003 the vineyards have been farmed biodynamically. Nick spent several vintages in Burgundy and this experience is clearly evident in the structure and expression of the wines. Rippon’s wines are all made from estate grown fruit and a number of wines are produced including Pinot Noir, Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc, Gamay, Osteiner and the Jeunesse Range from younger vines.
