Located on Young Lane, via Springvale Road

Covering 2,000 hectares and home to around 140 wineries, the Central Otago wine region began its journey at Monte Christo. Féraud’s original winery has been meticulously restored, standing as a rare testament to New Zealand’s 19th-century agricultural history.

Today this heritage building serves as our cellar door, where our guests are invited to taste Monte Christo wines in wonderfully authentic, historical surroundings.
