About Us

We are Rob and Kate Burley and since 2019 we have been organically farming a picturesque 5.5 Hectare vineyard in Nelson, planted with Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris & Riesling.

Luta wines are a recent addition to our Unkel Wines range and are wines made from a selection of barrels that we believe tell the story of the unique Moutere clays and the organic vineyards in which these vines are farmed. These are aged for longer at every step, from barrel to tank and again in the bottle, prior to release.

‘Luta’ - derived from Lutum, the Latin word for clay - pays reference to the Moutere clays where the grapes are grown.

We are so fortunate to farm in such a beautiful area and the resulting wines are something we are extremely humbled to have produced from land that we are deeply connected to.
