In the 1860s Central Otago was a place of gold. Today the region’s gold is Pinot Noir.

Mount Dunstan Estates is one of the leading Central Otago Pinot Noir grape suppliers in New Zealand. We are sitting just north of the Alexandra Basin under the watchful eye of Leaning Rock, or Haehaeata, which means ‘first to see the dawn’. The estates comprise a unique blend of rural lifestyle living within 42 hectares of established Pinot Noir vineyard. The local climate is extreme with hot summers, bracing winters and the lowest rainfall in New Zealand. Our careful vine and water management produces good yields of excellent grapes.

Without the best fruit, you can’t make the best wine!​

We supply quality Central Otago Pinot Noir grapes to New Zealand vintners who produce award-winning Pinot Noir and Pinot Noir Rosé wines destined for local and international markets. We operate under Sustainable Winegrowing NZ regulations. These regulations ensure that we meet international standards for sustainability practices.

​We also produce our own wines under the Mount Dunstan label –
Pinot Noir, Pinot Noir Reserve and Pinot Noir Rosé.
