Domain Road is owned by the Crosbie family with two vineyards located in Bannockburn, Central Otago. We produce a range of award winning wines that are enjoyed around the world. Very cold winters contrasting with hot dry summers have proved to be an ideal climate for difficult grape varieties. Our dedicated hands-on care of the vines during each season allows the harvest of outstanding grapes, the cornerstone to producing expressive wines.
The town of Bannockburn has a long history of gold prospecting and the vineyard site on Domain Road has been part of that history for almost 150 years. The vineyard takes advantage of its gold mining legacy to determine the location of each planting of Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling vines.
Defiance vineyard on Felton Road, Central Otago’s golden mile for vineyards, was largely left untouched by the gold mining boom and has retained its natural gently sloping character which helps us to take advantage of the sun. Defiance and Domain Road vineyards are a perfect match for each other.
