The May Price Guide: Gold in the Hills!
Skurnik Wines welcomes Felton Road to the portfolio!

The story of Felton Road begins with extensive research by Stewart Elms (inspiring the Elm tree logo) in 1991, which would ultimately identify the north-facing slopes at the end of Felton Road in Bannockburn as some of warmest and most ideal sites in all Central Otago. Motivated by these findings, Felton Road proprietor Nigel Greening purchased the land that would be eventually transformed into the defining vineyard sites for his winery.

Despite a rich history of gold mining and agriculture dating back to the 1800s, commercial viticulture in Central Otago only began in the 1980s. However, thanks to Felton Road and a few other like-minded pioneering producers, the region has come to be recognized as one of the top winemaking regions in the Southern Hemisphere.

Releasing their first vintage in 1997, this impressive reputation the winery has cultivated over the last three decades is, in large part, a direct result of winemaker Blair Walter’s singular vision.
