Felton Road

New Zealand, South Island

Felton Road and Rippon are undoubtedly the two leading vineyards in Central Otago, both making Pinots that are finely textured with fresh fruit flavours, rather than the 'fruit bombs' that so many others produce. Felton Road has been totally Organic and Biodynamic across their three Bannockburn vineyards since 2005. They will be certified by Demeter in 2009. This viticultural regime is reportedly making a significant difference to the health and strength of their vines over many of their neighbouring vineyards.
