Few places in the world are more exciting and breathtakingly beautiful than our own Central Otago Wine region.
If you're headed that way this Labour Weekend, check out the Fifth Alexandra Basin New Release Afternoon on - you'll have the rare treat of finding all the producers from Alex Basin represented there, offering their latest vintages.
The event is being held in the beautiful gardens at Oliver’s in Clyde. The event runs from 1 till , and will feature all the new releases of wine. There will be a wide range of styles and different types of wine including (of course) Central Otago Pinot Noir - and also showing off Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris, and Rose’.
I have had the pleasure of being part of two of these events previously. The guest speaker this year is the affable John Hawkesby - that well known broadcaster, wine writer & raconteur. It is a ticketed event - your $25 includes a glass and entry to taste some or all of the wines on show.
