Nestled amongst vineyards and olive trees and lying alongside Marlborough’s Opawa River, talented, young Owner/Winemaker David Clouston uses the black cottage to host international guests and friends alike. Days are spent playing croquet, 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. Dave mixes his European expertise with the best local fruit from the Awatere and the Wairau sub-regions of Marlborough, delivering bight yet sophisticated examples which are incredibly drinkable and full of gusto.
