Fiona H

Hi I'm Fiona and I live in Alexandra, Central Otago - the southernmost wine producing region in New Zealand ( and possibly the world!). This region is internationally recognised for the award winning Pinot Noir grown here - complex, beautifully balanced, fruit driven deliciousness as well as gorgeous aromatic whites. I've lived here for 20 years and I love introducing travellers to small production, family wineries. I also have exclusive access to VinPro, the largest winery, bottling provider and warehouse in Central Otago where I can show you behind the scenes. The wine is fantastic and the scenery is stunning. Let me show you the great wines of this unique region.
