Nestled amongst vineyards, olive trees, a cricket ground and lying alongside Marlborough’s Opawa River, founder Dave Clouston uses the black cottage to host international guests and friends alike. Days are spent playing cricket, clay bird shooting, cooking fresh fish on the BBQ and drinking delicious wine. The company is fun, life is good. Welcome to Black Cottage… You will not want to leave.
We don’t take ourselves too seriously at Black Cottage but focus on crafting delicious wines that over-deliver. Founder Dave Clouston, together with Winemaker Sanna Stander mix their European expertise with the best local fruit, delivering bright yet sophisticated wines which are incredibly drinkable.
