Central Otago Pinot Noir Ltd (COPNL)Central Otago Pinot Noir Ltd (COPNL)

Central Otago Pinot Noir Ltd (COPNL) is a company wholly owned by our association, COWA. It was set up to promote the Central Otago region and Central Otago wines in both home and international markets. By any account it must be judged as extremely successful in achieving its aims. In particular, by fostering excellent personal relations with major international wine writers our small region has developed an international presence far outweighing our relative size or level of production.
