Immigrant's Vineyard is a 19ha vineyard, 16 ha planted, in the Alexandra Basin - Central Otago. The vineyard is owned and operated by Roland and Lucienne van der Wal. They create a variety of wines under the Ruru label. In 2019 Roland and son Michiel started to build a house and tasting room on the property, designed by Roland. This took 18 months. The building is now finished and the tasting room is open from 11-4. They are working owners, so you may have to give them a text/call to get them out of the vineyard.
Cellar door is operated from the double storey house in the vineyard, accessible by car from Airport Road or bike or pedestrian access only via the Otago Central Rail Trail. The house was designed and built by Roland and son Michiel and is featured on Grand Designs NZ.
