Bald Hills – Bold Wines from Bannockburn

16-May-2011
Blair and Estelle Hunt, the owners of Bald Hills Wine have approached the making and marketing of their wines with boldness and enthusiasm. All they have done has been with quality in mind and they have made a strong claim in the premium wine stakes for Central Otago. Planting in 1997, their 11 ha vineyard on Cornish Point Road in Bannockburn produces up to 3000 cases of wine annually, 70% Pinot Noir, 15% Riesling and 15% Pinot Gris. Grant Rolston of Vinewise has managed the viticulture since 2000, and Grant Taylor has made the wines for the Hunts from their first vintage in 2002, with Christopher Keys making the whites from 2009. The wines are vinified at Gibbston Valley winery. www.baldhills.co.nz
