When you live in Central Otago, you learn to appreciate all four distinctive seasons. It can be the hottest, the coldest, and the driest place in the country. Well, it is the middle of the desert. It’s also the perfect climate for growing fruit and making wine. What’s not to smile about?

There are no half measures: you’ll bask in the glory of the summer; kick back in the autumn golden glow; hunker down under the blanket of winter; and recharge the body and soul in the flourish of spring growth.

Each season brings with it change: in the pace of life and colour of the landscapes; and a change in what you’ll choose to do for recreation and enjoyment.
Here, we roll with the seasons and the change that each brings – that is the Central Otago way of life.
