Whether at an event, on a guided wine tour or self exploring the different sub-regions around Bannockburn, Cromwell, Alexandra and Clyde, a range of events, experiences and tours offer choices for all.
If you like to fit in exercise with your wine tasting, the Four Barrels walking wine trail at Cromwell, the Lake Dunstan trail to Bannockburn and Felton Road or the Pedal for Pinot Trail between Clyde and Alexandra are fun ways to combine two passions.
Hosted wine tours are a fabulous way for everyone to relax and enjoy the amazing wines on offer here. It saves you from having to nominate a driver. If you choose a local tour provider, they will most often know your hosts on a first name basis. And look out for locally made craft beers, ciders, juices and spirits at local bars and restaurants, there are some great flavours to enjoy - many of which have a unique story behind their creation.
Central Otago’s premium wine and food events including Eat.Taste.Central, Clyde Food & Wine Festival, Cromwell Wine & Food Festival, Cromwell Cherry Festival, Alexandra Basin New Release Tasting and more provide a range of experiences for wine and food lovers to enjoy.
