Calm before the storm. One thing what I have learned here is that the weather can change quite quickly. This pic is from yesterday just before the weather changed colder followed by a strong wind and a heavy rain at times. Today I had a plan to go trail running but severe weather warning has been issued around Central Otago. Not just a strong wind and a heavy rain warning, also a heavy snow warning. #winterisback#wanttogooutandplay

Who recognises this logo? Tag someone who does! This is an International F230d 1967 transporter that could tell a few cracking stories from its life at the Otago hydro schemes project. This and more like it will on display at W@W come April. See you there!

We are a working vineyard so Paul’s “things to do” list never gets shorter; if the vines are under control then the garden needs attention. But the sunshine, the beauty and being your own boss makes the job much more enjoyable.⠀ ⠀ #vineyard#centralotago

It's not a Spring or Autumn day here. We've had our first snowstorm already. Too soon! I wish I was in Bannockburn enjoying this wine & beautiful setting right now. Double tab if you wish you were there too! • • @Regran_ed from @terrasanctawine - A Classic Rosé for a spring (summer/autumn/winter) day. • • • #wine#nzwine
Storm brewing over the Kawarau river Today I wandered the twin river trail near where I ran on the half marathon. It’s easily accessible from the airport - lucky for me because I just got back to the airport before the full blast of the storm arrived 🌧🌬
Wooing Tree Vineyard is named after The Wooing Tree which sits prominently in the middle of the family vineyard. It has long been a place for locals to woo their lovers, and apparently, if it could talk, would have many a story to tell! These days it is not quite the private spot it once was…but there are still have plenty of visitors proposing marriage and even getting married under the beautiful iconic tree, amidst the vines. So.... do you fancy a trip to The Wooing Tree whilst on your stay with us at Cherry Cottage?
Mt. Difficulty is making world class Pinot Noir in Central Otago. I had their regular Pinot Noir before and it is great but the single parcel wines were stunning. Additionally, they are implementing vermiculture, bio-char, and even experimenting with some groovy concrete eggs. - - Link in bio for exclusive and rare offers. - - - - - - - - #wine#winelover
At the summit of Roy’s Peak. 3 hrs 55 in total. It was long and tough but so worth it. We had snow and rain and sunshine in the space of an hour. The views are out of this world. Just magical. #royspeak#glendhubay 📷: @sophie_oxley
Very satisfying installing the last of the Earthwool Batts. These batts are made using recycled glass making them environmentally friendly and sustainable, they also contain no added formaldehyde, meaning improved air quality! We think that's pretty cool! #yblqt
A southerly storm just before it slammed into Central Otago like a freight train this afternoon. After a warm week we are being reminded that it can change rapidly here. I can see that it's snowing in the hills and the temperature on the vineyard has plummeted to 5°C. From home I can see snow flurries getting blasted along horizontally above us as one of my garden buckets goes flying past the house... #vintage2019

The Cromwell area is home to a host of award-winning wineries. The region is famous for its Central Otago Pinot Noir and Riesling, but other varieties are also popular. Visit Cromwell and surrounds to sample some of New Zealand's finest wines! 🇳🇿🍇🍷🍾 #nz#newzealand
Been wanting to visit this place for years, and finally got to today. Could quite easily make this my local. Just got to move to Central Otago first. ———————————————————————— 🍺 = @cardronahotel ———————————————————————— #coaster#art
Summer is fast approaching and so is prime rosé drinking season! . This beautiful rosé is a staff favorite here at the bar.

Don't be shy, come on down and give it a try! . . . . . #wine#rose
