Coal Pit Vineyard, Coal Pit Road
The Coal Pit vineyard in the Gibbston Valley grape-growing district takes its name from the historical coal pit site in the nearby mountain ranges.
The original pit provided coal to musterers, gold miners and pioneers alike in the early days of the Province as they passed over the Coal Pit Saddle. The coal being bagged at the pit, loaded onto drays and brought down Coal Pit Road to the valley.
Coal Pit is now host to a new industry, one of the few “single” vineyards in Gibbston where the grapes are grown, picked and crafted on site to express the distinct purity of the wines from this unique Central Otago terroir.
