A great chance to get organised for Christmas Day, and sample and purchase some beautiful Central Otago products. There will be a selection of wineries from Alexandra's Basin including Como Villa, Pick & Shovel, Thyme Hill, Judge Rock and Omeo. Roxburgh's Up a Tree Distillery will be wooing us with their marvellous range of gin, fruit liqueurs, fruit brandy, schnapps, and ciders. If beer is more to your taste, Alexandra's Station Brewery will be there with their fantastic selection of craft beer.

Foodies will be will not be disappointed with a great variety from Central Otago present - nuts, olive oil, imported cheeses from France & Italy, salami, peanut brittle, christmas cake, mince pies, sauces, chutneys, christmas baked goods, jam, honey, olives and so much more.

Santa will be in the building from 10am- 1pm and we are welcoming him by transferring Central Stories Museum into a santa's grotto. There will also be a christmas hunt in the museum so children will be well entertained!
