Boutique winery soars sky high

Boutique Central Otago producer Lowburn Ferry Wines has capped a string of elite awards for its wines over the past fortnight with the announcement that its Pinot Noirs will be served in British Airways' first class cabins from early next year.

Lowburn Ferry Home Block Pinot Noir 2011 will be on board British Airways flights from March and vineyard owners Jean and Roger Gibson say the association with this premier airline represents a significant endorsement for Lowburn Ferry.

They hope first class patrons, being more or less a “captive audience”, will learn more about Central Otago wines during their voyage, improving the profile of the wines in developing markets, particularly Asia.

Lowburn Ferry has also been in the spotlight over the past fortnight having secured a top 10 placing in Cuisine magazine's Pinot Noir tasting (Lowburn Ferry Home Block Pinot Noir 2012), whilst the Lowburn Ferry Home Block Pinot Noir 2013 won a pure gold medal at the 2014 Air New Zealand Wine Awards, as well as blue-gold at the Sydney International Wine Competition.
