Come and celebrate the very first national winery Cellar Door Day at Dunedin's only city winery. Along with the latest releases there will be a selection of rare older vintages and special guest wines for retail sale for this one afternoon only. If you are curious about the winery this is the best day to visit.
URBN VINO is also still at the brilliant Otago Farmers Market every Saturday morning 8am-12.30pm at the Dunedin Railway Station.
The winery Cellar Door is also open for normal retail wine sales from 1pm-5pm every Saturday afternoon in the Terminus Building, 42 Queens Gardens (behind Moiety restaurant and directly opposite the Dunedin Chinese Gardens).
In April and May 2016 I started the URBN VINO DUNEDIN project in a temporary location in an historic building undergoing restoration. I brought Central Otago grapes and winemaking equipment to Dunedin and made Pinot Noir right in the middle of one of the best small cities in the world (and in the middle of a building site).
In March 2018, after a great deal of planning, the URBN VINO project finally came back to the city, this time for good. We returned with all the winemaking equipment and some grapes from Bendigo and Bannockburn and made wine in the city again. The wine will stay in barrel right here until bottling. URBN VINO has found a permanent home in the historic Terminus Building at 42 Queens Gardens.
