Our Story

In 1997 the land that sits beneath a range of 'bald hills' in Bannockburn, Central Otago was identified as the ideal place to produce cool-climate wines. Vines were lovingly planted in this stunning scene and so began the Bald Hills story.

Aged with care and craft

Crafted from hand-picked premium fruit parcels our Central Otago wines are a true representation of our boutique Bannockburn vineyard. 

Our Pinot Noir is lovingly aged in French oak barriques.

Bald Hills Kirameki Pinot Gris 2018 (93 Points)... A classic - plush and fruity with flavours of white nectarine and peach blossom, apple and a whisper of spice, citrus and minerality. A delicious pinot gris, integrated with a satin mouthfeel, lengthy finish and ready to enjoy.

Bald Hills Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016... Maturing very gracefully, this fragrant, deep ruby, elegant red was hand-picked and matured for a year in French oak barriques (33% new). Still unfolding, it is full-bodied and vibrantly fruity, with ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, nutty, savoury notes adding complexity, fresh acidity and good tannin backbone.

Bald Hills 'Last Light' Riesling 2018... This is fabulously expressed on the nose showing lemon curd, lime zest, apple and white floral aromas, leading to a juicy palate that is vibrant and flavoursome. The wine offers subtle sweetness which is brilliantly balanced by crisp acidity, making the wine delectable and lingering.
