“Wine as pure as the place itself.”

Play a part in the Amisfield wine story, and enjoy a taste of passion and tranquility.

Designed by Christchurch architect Charlie Nott, Amisfield's winery was built in 2006. With its distinctive sloping roof echoing the mountains behind it, this two-level facility blends seamlessly with its surroundings. Yet its form is of pure function, well suited to its rustic site under the Pisa mountain range.

The scene is dramatic. And while the structure is at first imposing, you’ll discover welcoming New Zealand hospitality inside. In winter, the fire is ever ablaze. In summer, sunlight filters onto the terrace. Whatever the season, it’s instantly inviting.

Amisfield Vineyard was formed around a simple philosophy: to nurture nature at every step. With its location, nestled within the harsh yet beautiful surrounds of Central Otago, New Zealand, the unique terroir and the natural talents of the skilled team do all the work.

Enjoy tastings at the Amisfield Cellar Door between 10am-6pm, trying the best of Central Otago's famous Pinot Noir. For lunch, choose between two styles of the signature 'Trust the Chef' tasting menus. Dinner is always 'Trust the Chef'. These menus are created by the Amisfield Bistro chefs daily, serving the best of what is fresh, local and in season.

Cellar Door Open - 10am - 6pm.

Lunch 12pm to 3pm.

Dinner 5pm to 8pm with last seating at 5.30pm. Bookings are essential.
