|Perseverance Estate is situated in the Alexandra Basin, part of the Central Otago Province, New Zealand’s premier Pinot Noir producing region. Formed by the movement of glacial rock and ice, the scenery in this area is both picturesque and dramatic, leaving behind soils that are dominated by schist, which in turn influence the taste and feel of the region’s wine.
Located between Alexandra and Clyde at Mutton Town Gully, Perseverance Estate derives its name from a current wheel gold dredge, built in 1886 by the “father” of gold dredges, Louis Gards. This dredge worked at Mutton Town Point on the Clutha River until 1889 - an illustration of the dredge features on the front label of our wine bottle. Perseverance’ was and still is a vital ingredient in the recipe for survival in this challenging climate.
This family owned boutique vineyard produces handcrafted, single vineyard award winning Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Rosé and Pinot Cousins dessert wine. Open for tastings by appointment.
