This place may just encourage encourage your bankruptcy, as these are some of the best wines in New Zealand. Ingrid our host was so knowledgable and informative, she answered all my questions and left me with a greater love for Felton Road. The wines are spectacular, exclusive, and well worth the spend. A+ experience

You need to phone for a time to visit this winery. They have set times, and you must allow one and half hours. Felton Road, give a tour of their winery and an in depth explanation of how they operate. This is followed up by a tasting of selected wines. There are limited numbers allowed on these tours so it...

We have visited this winery on 4 occasions and found that they consistently produce some of New Zealand's best Pinot Noir. If you join their wine club you get great discounts and fantastic service. Sarah did a very professional job taking us through the latest wines and gave us an interesting tour. You need to ring and make an appointment... More

Sarah was most welcoming & gave us a great overview of the property & wines. Jancis the cat was super affectionate & cuddly. Fab views from the newly renovated tasting room which was not only spacious but smelt great. Highly recommend.

We visited 7 wineries yesterday and this was easily the highlight of the day. We made an appointment and received an incredible welcome which surpassed the experience what others were offering. The building is undergoing renovations which made us lucky enough to taste in their wine library which was a great touch! The wines are consistently brilliant and I will... More

You can't come to Central Otago without visiting Felton Road. They really are one of the leaders of the world in producing pinot noirs. They also do great chardonnays, but only alright rieslings in my opinion (didn't even know they did rieslings till I visited the cellar door). If you want their even more premo wines, then unfortunately there's a... More

This is the iconic vineyard in this area. They do superb Pinot Noir and Riesling. While it is not the cheapest wine you will find, the quality is exceptional and that quality comes at a price. Always worth having some in the cellar. Great service (as usual) on this visit.

Recent visit to NZ included a visit to Felton Road. I have had their wines in the US and was very pleased to try them in their home country. They did not disappoint. Its a bit of a drive from Queenstown, but a beautiful drive.

Felton Road wines are stunning. Their Pinot Noir is exceptional. The Vineyard is only open for tastings in the afternoon, but the quality of this Central Otago wine is exceptional. I thoroughly recommend this vineyard to anyone who loves Pinot Noir.
