The family-owned Coal Pit boutique vineyard covers 12 hectares of land on the north-facing slopes of the Gibbston Valley, in Central Otago. At latitude 45°, this fertile valley is not only the world’s southern-most wine producing region, but also the most breathtaking, with snow-capped peaks, dramatic rivers and thyme-covered hills.
Coal Pit constructed a 30 tonne winery in 2009 to accommodate the winemaker’s desire to pick grapes at their best – while the vibrancy and delicate flavours are still fresh. This makes it one of the few single vineyards in Gibbston where the grapes are grown, handpicked and crafted into wine on-site.
Kono Beverages distribute the following Coal Pit wines throughout New Zealand:
- Coal Pit Sauvignon Blanc
- Coal Pit Rosé
- Coal Pit Pinot Noir
