Gibbston Valley Wines released the region’s first commercial wine vintage in 1987. Since then the region and its several vineyards have become famous for producing premium wines, particularly pinot noir.
Winemaking at 45 south is an adventurous business. The vineyards are at high altitude and subject to cold winters, hot dry summers, and a huge night to day temperature range. Such adversity has led to pioneering winemaking, consistently superb wines, worldwide recognition and a plethora of international awards.
The Central Otago wine region has become especially well-known for its award winning Pinot Noir. Other locally produced varieties include Riesling, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Methode Traditional.
