In this episode of Wine for Normal People I catch up with Elizabeth to chat about Central Otago – an area my family has spent many years in. Although Central Otago accounted for only 2% of total production in New Zealand for 2016, the wine from this region is well worth going the extra mile to track down – so pour yourself a glass and take a listen!

There are just under 2,000 ha (approximately 4,700 acres) under vine in Central Otago and nearly 80% is devoted to the region’s signature grape, Pinot Noir. In this episode we have a chat about the modern winemaking history of the region, sub-regions, the climate and soil together with some suggested itineraries for your visit and a well kept secret of the region – sparkling wines and white wines!
