Bald Hills Estate of Bannockburn, Central Otago is of an unusual triangular shape of 11 hectares. Bordered by the Cairnmuir hills and the Kawarau River it has inspiring views to the Pisa Range, the flat-topped terraces above Lowburn and along the Clutha River Valley towards Hawea and Wanaka. A charming homestead, surrounded by gardens, includes a small tasting room where visitors enjoy the aromas and flavours of the single-vineyard wines the Bald Hills owners are so proud of. Desert-like hot days, cold nights and long autumns allow for the slow ripening of the fruit. The pinot noir grape, so fickle, so difficult in all but the most desirable of positions, loves Bannockburn, one of the few places in the world which can grow this notorious variety. The first plantings commenced in the Spring of 1997 after minimal disturbance of the soil structure and under the management of well-known viticulturist Robin Dicey in those all-important formative years. Managed now by viticulturist Grant Rolston (pictured) and his small team of dedicated people, Bald Hills comprises a total of 7 and a half planted hectares – pinot noir, pinot gris, and riesling. Almost all the work is done by hand: pruning, bunch and shoot thinning, picking. Great care is taken to adhere to the practices of sustainable winegrowing. Bald Hills is a Certified Sustainable Vineyard. Read less
