A solitary white cloud whisked upward against the deep blue sky of a Central Otago landscape has inspired our World of Difference brand logo. The sky is so much part of who we are. It not only creates colours of inspiration, moments of pure reflection and a humbling sense of man’s place in nature, but it is also the key to many a daily decision.
The huge expanse allows those living off the land a few clues that only Central Otago New Zealand locals could pass on. The smell of pending rain, the sense that a Northwesterly is brewing - all assist in Central Otago's vast agricultural portfolio.
Then - the gentle quiet of night and its monochromatic lighting interspersed with the phased sequence of the Moon is an ethereal display of a starlit cosmos.
