    The Alexandra wine growing sub-region is still undiscovered by the majority of wine enthusiasts who enjoy Central Otago Pinot Noir, despite being the among pioneering districts. There are 25 wine producers making not only Pinot Noir but first-class aromatic whites and a host of other varieties and styles. The wines have their own style and add to the diversity of the Central Otago vignoble.

    This is the sixth New Release Tasting for the Alexandra Basin Wine Growers where members will offer over 50 wines for tasting, most of them new releases. The ticket cost includes cheese and crackers, a branded tasting glass and tasting booklet with information about each vineyard.
