Locharburn Wines – Constructing Central Otago Wine

07-Jul-2011
Launched in 2004, Locharburn is the single-vineyard wine label of Chris and Jenny Hill, a couple from the Taranaki, with a passion for wine. They harboured a dream to make wine in the Central Otago region following frequent visits. Chris and Jenny, working in the construction and electrical contracting business, made the lifestyle change with the purchase of the Locharburn site on terraces above Lowburn, Lake Dunstan, near Cromwell. The Hills have the highly-respected and very-experienced Carol Bunn as their winemaker and had the consultancy of James Dicey as viticulturist. Chris and Jenny live on site, Chris looking after the viticulture and business management, and Jenny the marketing and branding. The labels feature her textural artwork. www.locharburnwines.co.nz
