Felton Road Wine Evening

Felton Road is one of the legendary names in New Zealand wine. They’re probably the most famous of the Central Otago wineries, making highly regarded Pinot Noirs in particular. Felton Road dates back to 1991, when Stewart Elms planted the Elms Vineyard on Felton Road, in the Bannockburn district of Central Otago. Current owner Nigel Greening first purchased Cornish Point Vineyard in 1998 (an 8.6 hectare block), and then in 2000 purchased Felton Road with the Elms Vineyard, which now has 14.6 hectares of vines.

The entire estate is now run biodynamically, which Nigel describes as “Organics mixed with Harry Potter” although currently the wines aren’t certified biodynamic, just organic (there was a problem with the certification process). The heart of the range consists of a series of five world-class Pinot Noirs: Cornish Point, Block 3, Block 5, Calvert and the “regular” Bannockburn Pinot Noir, along with superb Burgundy styled Chardonnays and finely crafted Rieslings.

The evening includes

  • Champagne & Canapes to start
  • 4 course menu inc tea, coffee and petits fours
  • Matched wine flight with wine tasting
  • Mineral water
  • Service

Seating at shared tables of up to 12 people in the Louis Roederer Private Dining Rooms.
