Establish by the Sauvage family of Nevada, the Burn Cottage vineyard is part of a 27 ha diverse farm operation at Lowburn, above Lake Dunstan, near Cromwell. Set in a natural amphitheatre, the vineyard was developed and runs to biodynamic principles under the guidance of Peter Proctor. 10.24 ha are planted to Pinot Noir, the majority the new Dijon clones, with Abel and 10/5 also prominent. There is 0.51 ha of Riesling and 0.24 ha of Gruner Veltliner also planted. Claire Mulholland, best known for her time at Martinborough Vineyard is general manager, and shares associate winemaker role with renowned Californian-based winemaker Ted Lemon.
