Premium handcrafted Central Otago Pinot 

Our Central Otago Pinot Noir, Pinot Rose and Pinot Gris, hand harvested from our estate vineyard, provide a smooth flavorsome mouthful of relaxation.

Our wines, infused with ancient glacial mineral deposits in our soil, embodies the extreme Central Otago climate. The grapes are delicately crafted into wines of substance by our experienced winemaker and ready for you to enjoy.

We are a family owned boutique vineyard - family, friends, food, wine and the enjoyment of life - that's Drumsara.

We live in a cool climate that is well suited to sometime temperamental needs on the Pinot grape. 

To produce wine of the highest quality we use our hands when others use machines. We thin, pluck and harvest by hand to ensure their health and that of the soil from which they grow, delivering them to our winemaker in perfect condition.

Pinot Noir


Cherries with spicy bright berry flavour and a punctuation of white pepper.

Savour with grilled butterfly lamb leg steaks, tabbouleh and homemade bbq sauce.

Pinot Rose


Distinctive hints of strawberry and cooked rhubarb on the nose, this wine displays some subtle sweetness.

Enjoy chilled with antipasto platters, and cold cut meats like ham, salami and pate.

Pinot Gris

Pear, lime and stone fruit characters, with a definite dry finish.

Serve with lightly spiced chicken salad or maybe barbecued scallops and crayfish.
