Welcome to Black Ridge Vineyard & Winery


Famous for being the world's southernmost vineyard and winery, Black Ridge is also one of the first vine growers in the Central Otago region, planted in 1981.

We are a small boutique vineyard and winery set amongst the rugged thyme covered schist outcrops and hills of Conroys Gully, near Alexandra.

We proudly grow 24,600 vines, distributed in our unique rocky landscape. Some of them are almost 40 years old, resulting in wines with distinctive terroir based character.

We specialise in Pinot Noir, Riesling, Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Breidecker.

Our tasting room is open Monday - Friday from 11am till 5pm and weekends by appointment over the winter months and visitors are always welcome.

Visit us and be a part of Central Otago’s wine making history. Come, enjoy a taste of award winning wine, and create your own memories of this magical part of New Zealand.
