In the 1860s, Frenchman Jean Desire Feraud travelled to Central Otago’s Alexandra district in search of gold, and went on to establish the region’s first winery. The Alexandra Basin sub-region of Central Otago is now home to 25 wine producers. Ranging in production size from just a few hundred cases to many thousands, our growing environment offers a concentration on Pinot Noir and aromatic varieties such as Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Gris. Other grape varieties are grown here too. These include Merlot, St Laurent, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Rosa Muscat and others.

Seven years ago a keen group of boutique viticulturalists from the Alexandra Basin banded together to hold their first New Releases Event which is gaining popularity each year. This year our local producers will be showcasing over 50 new release wines.

This event differs from a Wine and Food festival format whereby people are able to sample a smaller portion of a large number of newly released wines, thus experiencing a wide selection of wine produced in our own backyard. Guests receive a branded tasting glass and a tasting booklet with information about each vineyard and the wine they are presenting.
