Coal Pit is one of our favourite Otago wine producers, great wines in both quality and value and operated by a dedicated, passionate and highly skilled team.Floris – Scenic Cellars / The Merchant of Taupo.
Coal Pit is an NZ family-owned vineyard on the warm north-facing slopes of Gibbston, the highest sub-region in Central Otago. (Their vines are some of the original Gibbston plantings dating back to 1994!). Coal Pit is one of the few single vineyards in Gibbston where the grapes are grown, handpicked and crafted into wines on site. They have dedicated themselves to growing Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc, and will be presenting their IWC Trophy & Gold medal winner, 2014 ‘Tiwha’ Pinot Noir, at this year’s festival. A winemaker not to miss!
