Aurum Wines – Family-Run Certified Organic and Sustainable Winery Located in Central Otago

Aurum Wines is a family-run wine estate and vineyard located in Lowburn in the Central Otago of New Zealand. Their tasting room and cellar door are located in a charming farm cottage, between Wanaka and Cromwell, where visitors are always welcome. All the work in their winery and vineyards is carried out using certified organic and sustainable procedures, and they work hard to produce unique, high-quality wines that show the origins of their terroir. Joan and Tony Lawrence planted their first grapes on the Pisa Flats in 1997, and by 2001, the Te Wairere Vineyards were developed. Their daughter-in-law, Lucie, and son Brook, joined the company and, in 2006, releasing their first vintage from their newly constructed Aurum Winery.

All the work in Aurum Wines’ winery and vineyards is done using certified organic and sustainable methods.

Ensuring Protection of the Environment and their Vineyards at the Winery

The town of Cromwell is surrounded by the Pisa, Southern Alps, Cairnmuir, and Dunstan Mountains. The soil has a high mineral content, which, along with little rainfall, makes the region perfect for the growth and cultivation of vines. The winemakers at Aurum Wines are always aware of the environment and continuously try new methods in their estate to ensure the protection of the environment and their vineyards.

Varietals Grown and Minimal Intervention in the Cellar

The main types of grapes grown in their vineyards are Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, and Riesling. The best grapes go into the production of their superb red, white, rosé, dessert, and fortified wines. The winemakers follow the tradition of using natural wild yeasts for fermentation and minimal intervention during wine production. These practices, along with their organic practices, give a unique taste and structure to their wines.
