Located near Bannockburn, the Water Race Vineyards a located in a sheltered valley which provides a unique micro-climate, ideal for producing premium quality wines. The vines are planted in the lower region of the vineyard where 19th century gold miners left an area of exposed mineral rich, the remnants of a 10 million year old lake bed.

Water races were used by gold miners to carry water and are an iconic part of the Central Otago landscape, following the contours of the hills, often over many miles. Many are still in use today helping transform a dry landscape into useable farmland. Domain Road Vineyard, like many others, relies on the industry of early settlers and their water races to produce its wines, including this Dry Riesling.
