A two-week wine event in October promises to be a drawcard for local wine enthusiasts as well as the many (mainly Australian) overseas tourists who visit the region during the skiing season.
“The Down to Earth Wine Celebration” offers a wide choice of “hands on” wine related activities offered by 30 wine producers. You simply need to visit downtoearthwinecelebration.co.nz to choose from a range of activities that suit your interest and budget. Some of the highlights include:

“Bring your boots and raincoats, as well as your high heels and fur coats, and discover the vineyards, wineries and fine dining restaurants of the wider Central Otago region,” says organiser Bruce McGechan.
