|Domain Road Vineyard produces premium Pinot Noir, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, and Pinot Noir Rosé wines from a small vineyard nestled in the heart of the historic Bannockburn gold mining area. The vineyard, covering most of a small valley in the township of Bannockburn at the end of Domain Road, is owned by the Crosbie family, who have enjoyed holidaying in Bannockburn for many years, and has family connections with the area over several generations.
Embracing the local history is an important aspect of the vineyard development. An historic rammed earth gold miner’s cottage built in 1880s by one of the property’s first owners has been restored and improved, and two restored Series One Land Rovers as well as classic tractors are used on the vineyard. Graeme is currently restoring a 1950 O Series Bedford truck to be used during harvest to transport bins of grapes to the winery.
Domain Road Pinot Noir 2007 was awarded a gold medal at the New Zealand International Wine Show in 2008, as well as a 5 star rating in Cuisine magazine and is available along with our other wines from local specialist wine retailers.
Wine tastings are available by appointment only.
