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. 

Bald Hills vineyard Central Otago

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. 

See what the critics have to say

Bald Hills Kirameki Pinot Gris 2019 ~ It's elegantly fragrant and enticing on the nose showing honeydew melon, poached pear, rich floral and subtle spice aromas, leading to a wonderfully flavoursome palate delivering excellent fruit weight and persistency. Silky and mouthfilling with delectable flavours.

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 2019 ~ Elegant and stunning; the delicately lifted bouquet shows lime peel, crunchy apple, lemon curd and white floral aromas, followed by a brilliantly juicy palate displaying excellent focus and flow. It's wonderfully complemented by subtle sweetness and vibrant acidity, making it delicious and hugely appealing.
