From humble beginnings in the 1980s, the Central Otago wine industry has grown into a major calling card for the region and New Zealand. Set within a magnificent landscape, many of the vineyards and their wineries have themselves become thriving tourist attractions.The Vineyards of Central Otago tells the enchanting tale of the people who risked it all to capture the Pinot dream- the vineyard developers and owners, the viticulturists and winemakers. From diverse countries and backgrounds, they have all shared a passion for Central Otago and a belief in its one-of-a-kind wine-growing potential.Full of colour and character, and celebrating the very best of Kiwi endeavour, The Vineyards of Central Otago is a visually stunning showcase, and a must-have for anyone who?s ever fallen under the Pinot spell.
Viv Milsom?s family were wine and spirit merchants in Dunedin, so when she was growing up Sunday roast was always accompanied by a glass of imported red or white wine. Ski holidays in Central Otago were also part of family life.Gaining a BA Hons in Political Studies and English from the University of Otago, Viv went on to work as a television and radio news journalist. A switch to secondary education and, in particular, teaching English led to an interest in print journalism. Ten years ago Viv moved to Central Otago to work as a freelance writer and journalist. The Vineyards of Central Otago is her first book.When not writing, Viv loves to spend time with her family, play golf, ski, travel and walk the hills near her Wanaka home with her chocolate lab Fudge.
