For Immediate Release

The Nose Restaurant & Wine Tasting opens its doors

The Nose Restaurant and Wine Experience has just opened its doors at the new Highlands Motorsport Park in Cromwell, Central Otago on the first day of the Open Week.

The Nose offers café style food and is open from 9am - 5 pm. Evening menus are currently being developed and next month, The Nose will be open all day as well as evenings for dining.

The Nose is an ideal location for a lovely alfresco lunch in the sun, or in winter dinner by the open fire. There has been strong interest in using The Nose as a functions venue, from weddings to corporate functions. The extensive renovations are now complete and the first customers have been very complimentary about the ambience, the great coffee and food and the great selection of Central Otago wine.

The staff at the Nose are all locals as is the Manager Carol Henderson. Carol came from Mt Difficulty Winery, where she worked for 11 years, 7 years as the Manager.

Another feature of The Nose is the wine tasting experience (hence the name!)

“We offer people a wine tasting experience including an educational movie about the local wine region and its uniqueness in the production of Central Otago Pinot. You can visit our wine tasting room where you can associate the aromas of wine with your tastings.” Says Peter Kelly, Wine Sales Manager.

There is an extensive range of Central Otago wines available at the Nose cellar door, located in The Nose Restaurant. These wines can also be enjoyed in the restaurant.

The Nose offers its own Central Otago house wine ‘on tap’, a new concept in New Zealand along with Draught Pilsener and a Draught Lager and Cider. Over the next few months, wine can also be bought through The Nose’s online shop.

Guided walks of the Highlands Motorsport Park are available daily at 11 o’clock this week. Another great way to view the track is from the air with Highlands Aviation offering a special 20-minute scenic flight of the track and the wider area, including Bannockburn with views to the head of the Cromwell Gorge and Lake Dunstan at $ 59 for adults and $ 39 for kids.
