Our Story

Settled in the deep south of New Zealand is one of the most intriguing winemaking regions in the world. World-renowned for its Pinot Noir, Central Otago has kudos alongside Burgundy. Gibbston Valley, close to adventure capital Queenstown, is the highest and coolest sub-region with long, cool ripening periods. Further East along the southern banks of the jagged Kawarau River lies Bannockburn, known initially for its rich alluvial goldfields that have attracted those seeking their fortune since the late 1800s. Breath-takingly barren, the exposed rocks, sands and soils, combined with a uniquely warm and dry climate, have earned Bannockburn its nickname ‘the heart of the desert.’ With their rugged terrains and extreme conditions, these areas produce highly distinctive and complex wines.


In times gone by, miners flocked to our hills in search of gold. Now these hills produce gold of a different kind, forged by the elements, crafted by hand.
