Amisfield was established in 1988 and is a Central Otago based specialist producer of Pinot Noir and aromatic white wines, sourced from fruit grown on their Single Vineyard Estate, situated beneath the glacially sculptured Pisa mountain range. Vineyards are managed holistically through organic practices focused around nurturing Amisfield’s unique soils, vines and habitats – this combined with a rugged inland location and an extreme semi-continental climate, yields wines of remarkable purity, intensity and vibrancy.
The vineyard at Amisfield Estate beneath the dramatic Pisa mountain range of Central Otago is New Zealand’s most spectacular wine region. The privately owned estate, once a prominent high country merino sheep station, is now one of the largest single vineyard estates in the Central Otago region with over 90 Ha (222 acres) planted and farmed organically. The rugged inland location affords a semi-continental climate, with exceptionally cold winters, hot summers, cool evenings and low rainfall. This unforgiving environment gives generously to flavour. The unique growing conditions combined with glacially derived soils produce wines of remarkable purity, intensity and vibrancy.
A state-of-the-art purpose-built winery is the focal point of the vineyard and is designed to enable winemakers to craft wines with minimal intervention and as naturally as possible. At Amisfield they are committed to sustainability and environmental responsibility at every step of the process. The vineyard is now managed entirely organically and is in conversion to full organic certification with New Zealand’s leading organic certification body BioGro.
The Amisfield experience extends to a world-class Bistro & Cellar Door at Lake Hayes, Queenstown. Here, guests can experience the array of wines they produce every year accompanied by the freshest local produce.
