Burn Cottage Vineyard Property is a twenty four hectare estate in the foothills of the Pisa range in Central Otago, New Zealand. The property was purchased in 2002. It had been grazed by sheep for as long as can currently be remembered. The site was much coveted in the region for it is sheltered from both northerly and southerly winds by large hills and forms a beautiful, protected bowl, much like a modern amphitheatre.

 

From day one the very highest standards have been applied to every aspect of vineyard development and to cellar practices. While Burn Cottage celebrates the diversity of wine styles around the world, the estate is a passionate believer that the true genius of any site can only shine through wines of balance, wines picked at balanced levels of potential alcohol, and which receive only judicious use of new oak and the application of minimal technology.
