Desert Heart

The dream of Denny and Jane to live, develop a vineyard and a wine business in Central Otago became a reality when they established the Desert Heart Estate on Felton Road in Bannockburn, in 1999.

Desert Heart is about a love affair with Central Otago, this land of extraordinary contrasts and grandeur, a love of mysteries of wine and the passion for a challenge knowing the area was on the edge for the growing of grapes and wine making. A place that steals your heart. It is in this alpine desert landscape that Desert Heart vineyards are nestled, at the base of Mt. Difficulty on Felton Road, in Bannockburn, Central Otago. The Desert Heart exclusive range of premium wine is all about the sensual pleasures of life, the sounds, the smells, the flavours, the colours. Our philosophy is to let the fruit speak for itself and in keeping with the romance inherent in our wine, we believe the wine should express an approach to life, ensuring that what is captured in the bottle is not just processed grapes but a taste of “Desert Heart” and the culture and care that created it. Desert Heart is where beautiful wines are created, with what is best for the land, the grape and the soul; for us, it is the relentless pursuit of creating great enjoyment, wrapped in mystery, with a touch of sensuality.
