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 2020 ~ It's stylish and elegantly fragrant on the nose showing apricot, rockmelon, poached pear and subtle spice aromas, leading to a succulent palate that's fleshy and lingering. Smooth, refreshing and flavoursome with a splendid juicy finish.

Bald Hills Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017 ~ Aromas of Central Otago landscape with a rocky mineral and dried herb lift contrasted by a core of raspberry and dark plum, black cherry and myriad dried herbs. Intensely flavoured, textured and dry. Flavours of red berries and plums, toasty barrel and dried herb flavours, firm chalky tannins and plenty of acidity for texture and power.

Cam Douglas MS

Bald Hills 'Last Light' Riesling 2020 ~ This is a vigorous, intense Riesling with citrus tension, floral detail on a textural palate and a crisp finish. Match with tom yum and spicy tomato risotto over the next 4+ years.
