A family owned winery and vineyard, on the elevated warm north facing slopes of Gibbston. First planted in 1994, the 7 hectare vineyard consistently yields well integrated wines of great structure and elegance.
The Coal Pit name is derived from the historical area in the nearby mountain ranges which provided the early pioneers, musterers and gold miners with coal while the flagship Pinot Noir ‘Tiwha’ pays tribute to the owner's late father.
Finalist in the 2019 Cellar Door of the Year, Kinross invites you to discover Coal Pit wines alongside four premium Central Otago brands. Visitors can taste, explore and purchase these iconic New Zealand Wines daily from 10am - 6pm. Bookings preferred for groups over 8 people.
