Coal Pit

Coal Pit Vineyard, Coal Pit Road

Coal Pit Entrance

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.

Pinot Noir Wine

Pinot noir wines are among the most popular
in the world.

Joel Fleischman of Vanity Fair describes Pinot Noir as "the most romantic of wines, with so voluptuous a perfume, so sweet an edge, and so powerful a punch that, like falling in love, they make the blood run hot and the soul wax embarrassingly poetic."

Master Sommelier Madeline Triffon calls pinot
"sex in a glass".
