11am–4pm, Sundays 23 & 30 June
Experience URBN VINO’s delicious Central Otago grown, Dunedin–made wines alongside a special menu of Salchicha's delicious Argentinian fare as we celebrate the two weeks of the inaugural Dine Dunedin event.
Enjoy a glass or a tasting selection of wines in the warmth of the winery cellar door or (if weather permits, it is Dunedin in winter...) explore the secret courtyard in this magnificent building. We will have some older vintages to try, plus a new release straight out of tank and a brilliant guest orange wine as well (which is Pinot Gris made using red wine techniques, not wine made from oranges... confusing I know, but delicious). Drop in and try something new...
The wonderful Salchicha food caravan has crafted a very special menu to accompany the URBN VINO wines. Indulge in the finest traditional flavours from Argentina, ready your taste buds for some traditional Argentinian choripan and empanadas. Prices start from $10 and Salchicha promise vegetarian and gluten-free options.
Don't forget the regular Otago Farmers Market.
URBN VINO will continue to be at the brilliant Otago Farmers Market every Saturday morning at the Dunedin Railway Station throughout 2019. Come and see us up on the platform (look for the big sign) to try our latest releases of Riesling, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir.
The winery Cellar Door is also open for retail wine sales from 1.30pm-5pm every Saturday afternoon in the Terminus Building, 42 Queens Gardens (behind Moiety restaurant and directly opposite the Dunedin Chinese Gardens).
Tours and tastings are also available by appointment.
CONTACT URBN VINO.
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.
