Heading South in Search of Grapevines

Do you know where the southernmost wine region in the world is?

Hint: It’s not in South America.

Give up?

It’s Central Otago, which is located on the south island of New Zealand.

Interestingly, even though it’s on an island, Central Otago enjoys a continental climate. The region is shielded from the maritime influence of nearby large bodies of water by mountains.

The specialty of Central Otago: Pinot Noir.
