Established in 1995 and located at in the Pisa district, (10 km north of Cromwell, Central Otago) it has proved to be one of the best areas in the Cromwell Basin for premium grape production. The combination of high growing degree days, cool nights, and Waenga loam soils, consistently produces award winning wines.
Minimal intervention has been our guiding principle in the management of the land and in the winery. The aim is for our wines to express their ‘sense of place’. The ‘Black Poplar Block’ Pinot Noir – rated as a New Zealand ‘Classic’ – is our signature wine crafted from the oldest vines. Our inaugural Riesling was launched with the 2012 vintage, produced from vines with an average age of around 8 years.
Pisa Range Estate has relocated to a new site and we are now working on the next chapter of the Pisa Range Estate story. We continue to supply wine produced from the historical site.
