Coal Pit is a small family owned vineyard (12 hectares) on the beautiful north facing slopes of Gibbston in Central Otago just 20 minutes from Queenstown.
Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc grapes were first planted in 1994, making it one of the oldest vineyards in the area. Grapes are hand-picked and the wine is crafted in the on-site, state-of-the-art winery designed by award winning architect Chris Kelly. The Coal Pit wines, including older vintages can be tasted at Kinross Cottages on the Gibbston Highway. Phone: 0800 131 101.
