New Zealand’s Central Otago has welcomed another stunning addition to the region, with the long-awaited opening of the Te Kano Estate Tasting Room.

Sitting above the Te Kano Estate Eliza Vineyards in Bannockburn, the tasting room boasts a sleek, modern design with panoramic views of the estate and Kawarau River. Owner Rhonda Lloyd worked with local Otago architects Mason & Wales to create the eye-catching and modern cellar door design, with a nod to the surrounding environment and the vision of the Te Kano Estate brand.

“We hope the Te Kano tasting room will be a special place for our guests to relax and enjoy our wines,” says Rhonda. “It’s the heartbeat of our business. We not only welcome visitors to experience Te Kano, but to also celebrate this extraordinary land in Central Otago.”

The tasting room is open every day from 11am to 5pm.
