William and Kate visit Central Otago

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were in New Zealand last week and as part of their tour visited a vineyard in Central Otago, South Island.

The vineyard in question was Amisfield Winery in Queenstown, a 200-hectare estate planted with 80 hectares of vines, specialising in Pinot Noir and aromatic whites. The vines grown beside the Pisa Mountain range in the Cromwell Basin.

A tasting of wines from 30 local wineries, including Felton Road, Mt Difficulty and Rippon was put on for the royal couple and Kate enjoyed several tastes of Pinot Noir, putting to bed rumours in the press of a second pregnancy.

She told Amisfield’s owner, John Darby, that she was really enjoying being able to drink again after giving birth to Prince George.

William & Kate enjoyed a vineyard tour to learn more about the wine making process, and were given a few bottles of wine to take home.
