Harvest 2017

As the 2017 grape harvest gets into full swing, Central Otago Winegrowers Association general manager Glenys Coughlan said there was consensus among members that it had been a ”challenging” growing season, resulting in lower crop yields, but ”much more interesting fruit.”

A warm start to the growing season was followed by strong winds and cold temperatures through a fairly dismal summer, but recent conditions had resulted in a good ripening period, she said.

”Pinot noir is 76% of our planted areas and it responds well to stress, so we can expect some great reds.”

Wooing Tree, in Cromwell was one of the first vineyards to start picking grapes with work expected to finish today. Continue reading

Bragato Champion Rose 2016

Wooing Tree Rose 2016 has just won the Trophy for Champion Rose at the Bragato Wine Awards 2016.

The Bragato Wine Awards is seen by many as the first wine show for the new vintage; this is a chance to see how they stack up against other wines in the same class.

The objective is to give recognition to viticultural excellence and to recognize the influence of grape growers and their vineyards in creating the unique qualities of New Zealand wines, by judging the wines made from grapes grown on such specified vineyards.

This competition is open to all growers of New Zealand wine grapes to enter wine products from grapes grown on the vineyard or vineyards owned, managed, or operated by the entrant. Entries must be wholly made, processed and matured in New Zealand.

The 2016 Bragato Wine Awards are proudly sponsored by O-I New Zealand, the world’s leading glass bottle manufacturer.  Find out more about O-I New Zealand at www.o-i.com

Wooing Tree Development

Last week we announced a proposed zone change to our land that could allow for an attractive vineyard village-style development. We envisage Wooing Tree Estate to be a high-quality living space, with a mix of low- to high-density residential and light commercial, The new ‘light commercial’ zone would complement our existing Wooing Tree Vineyard cellar door and function centre, and could potentially include boutique, high-end accommodation, restaurants, cafes, art galleries, etc. Another idea could be hot pools/day spa. We believe that our concept will benefit Cromwell, by supporting residential growth and adding to the area’s wine and tourism industries.
Our award-winning wine label, cellar door and the famous Wooing Tree will remain – we have no intention of selling Wooing Tree Vineyard. Vines will remain and there will be a large amount of green public space to make this an attractive destination for locals and visitors alike.

Also if you have any questions or suggestions please feel free to contact us, we have a lot to think about whilst the plan change process happens, but it is very exciting for us and so far we have had very positive feedback from the locals.
