Step back in time with Como Villa

Central Otago Mirror - - FEATURES -

To step through the doors of the Como Villa wine tast­ing venue at 266 Earn­scle­ugh Road is to walk back in time. In days gone by, this desti­na­tion was the site of one of the orig­i­nal vine­yards of Cen­tral Otago but to­day it is ‘home’ to a se­lec­tion of wines in­clud­ing Gewu¨ rz­traminer, Reis­ling, Sav­i­gnon Blanc, Rose´ and award-win­ning Pinot Noir. Como Villa’s wine tast­ing venue makes a unique desti­na­tion for a Christ­mas func­tion. Built in 1865, this lov­ingly re­stored house, takes visi­tors and wine tasters back into the past. Make this your desti­na­tion for an end of year celebration: chal­lenge oth­ers on the putting green, try your hand at darts, ex­plore the mu­seum of old arte­facts which have been ei­ther found on the prop­erty or pur­chased to suit real old times, sam­ple the wines avail­able and learn about the dif­fer­ent meth­ods used to make them. Hear about the days when a vine­yard was first es­tab­lished on this site and Como Villa was a six-roomed stone house with sta­ble and dairy. And learn about the plans own­ers Johnny and Pam Chap­man have for the fu­ture. Visi­tors are wel­come to or­gan­ise their own food sup­plies and to bring them along as they cel­e­brate. Johnny and Pam look for­ward to wel­com­ing you to Como Villa and to shar­ing their vi­sion with you. Check them out at­ or email at info@co­ or phone (03) 449 2265.
