Most descriptions of Central Otago would leave you wondering why on earth people would plant grapes here. It’s the world’s most southerly (at latitude 45° south) and New Zealand’s highest winegrowing region.
Misha and Andy Wilkinson, after eighteen months, and much walking over potential vineyard land in Central Otago, found themselves standing on the dramatic lakefront terraces of Bendigo Station, a perfect location on which to establish Misha’s Vineyard.
They’ve discovered how special this region of Central Otago really is, and some amazing things about the unique piece of land they chose for the vineyard, in fact they’re constantly discovering things about growing the best grapes and making the best wines.
Their goal was to create a repertoire of elegant, cool climate, authentic wines that speaking clearly about their origin and that match some of the more subtle and exotic food flavours of the world.
Misha’s Vineyard has acheived this with accolades from both New Zealand and International wine writers, and many awards for their Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Noir.
