The amphitheatre carved out the Clutha and Kawarau rivers and the laying down of terminal moraine soils from the glaciers is now home to the biodynamically managed vineyard otherwise known as Burn Cottage. Purchased in 2002 by the Chicago based Sauvage family and under the guidance of Ted Lemon and Claire Mulholland, this tiny 10 ha plot nestled in the Pisa Range foothills has become one of a family of producers that have made this rugged and dramatically beautiful region home. Our wine talks of place, climate, geology and most importantly of the people that make the dream possible.
Our tasting are by appointment only, Monday - Friday and are held at our winery in the "industrial chic" area of Cromwell, where you will spend time with one of the Burn Cottage team tasting through a selection of the current release wines. A tasting takes approximately 30 minutes.
