Burn Cottage

Burn Cottage is located in the foothills of the Pisa mountain range in Central Otago, New Zealand. Enter Marquis Sauvage, an American wine importer with Maverick in Chicago and Classic Wines in Denver. Marquis got into wine at graduate school, gaining an MBA at the University of Denver. During a holiday in New Zealand, he flew over the piece of land about a mile from Felton Road in Otago that he eventually turned into Burn Cottage. Biodynamic techniques were used from the very start in 2002 on both the farm and the vineyard, with a policy advised and supervised by Ted Lemon. No one previously in the region had attempted to create a vineyard from bare land using purely biodynamic methods. Many said it was impossible to do so. But Marquis had assembled a dream team to bring his vision to reality. Visit the Burn Cottage Website
