In 1997,Crawford & Catherine Brown purchased land in Bannockburn, Central Otago and set out to make the best Pinot noir that Central Otago could produce. With a current count of three trophies and 26 Gold medals (and many more Silvers) over 10 vintages, they have demonstrated that, with quality as the over-riding philosophy, it can be done. In addition to the two Pinots noir, a barrel-fermented and aged Riesling, a Pinot noir Rosé and a Gruener Veltliner are popular additions to their portfolio.
