Tales from the Tasting Room: Our True Locals

Posted by & filed under News.

Do you know that Oyster Catchers, so commonly seen on the beaches of Otago prefer to nest inland? They also become quite aggressive towards other Oyster Catchers and have been providing us with much amusement as they see themselves mirrored inthe Tasting Room glass doors. Scare tactics include crying loudly and pecking at the doors!

Other unusual visitors to the Cellar Door include a pair of Paradise Ducks which nest here every year. They are keeping away from the glass doors since the arrival of those aggressive Oyster Catchers.
