A World of Flavor
Even if you’ve never been here before, your taste buds probably have.
Chances are, you’re already a fan of a few flavours of Central Otago. Our produce graces the menus and wine lists of the finest restaurants in the country, and the globe. Not to mention delicatessens and supermarkets. From world class wine, to regeneratively farmed lamb, stonefruit, honey, cheese, truffles, saffron and olive oil.
We reckon it tastes even better when you have it right here.
Experience Central Otago
In Central Otago, thrill-seeking is more like thrill-meandering. Whether you’re wandering, pedaling, paddling or driving, every which way you look makes the heart beat faster. From rugged, rocky outcrops, to the vast, open plains, iconic flat top mountains, and bigger-than-big sky, and at the end of it all, a world class glass of wine. Who needs bungee jumping, eh?
As this is a private retreat, please be considerate of your noise level at night and in the early morning so as not to disturb other guests enjoying their holiday.
