Unkel is a small organic vineyard & minimal intervention winery run by husband and wife duo Rob and Kate Burley, located in the picturesque growing region of Nelson/Tasman, New Zealand. Our wines are lovingly handcrafted in order to respect and portray a true sense of time & place.

“Unkel” (variation of the spelling of Uncle), is about working with Mother Nature in the Vineyard to produce the highest quality fruit that we can obtain from her. Once in the winery, rather than being that hands-on, overbearing parent or father figure, you can think of us more like that cruisy, fun, slightly wild Uncle in your life.

Winery notes (2022 Vintage)
"Skin-fermented Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Gewurztraminer, and Chardonnay aged in a mixture of old puncheons and stainless steel. A medium bodied orange wine that you want to keep sipping. Gentle, mouthwatering phenolics wrapped around a hit of Peaches and cream, orange rind, stewed red apple and nectarine.

The wines of the 2022 vintage are undoubtedly our best yet. After 3 years of farming this site we have learnt certain intricacies and nuances that have forged the path for how the wines are made here at Unkel. These wines run the line between both an expression of place and wines that are just downright fun to drink. We are extremely happy with these wines and we cannot wait to share them with you."

David Walker Bell,, March 2023 (2022 Vintage)
"I’m a fan of orange wines, and ‘Life’s a Beach’ orange 2022 is a funky skin-fermented blend of Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay aged in a mixture of old puncheons and stainless steel. Dry, with a prickle of phenolics and fruit tannin. Orange peel, apricot, apple pie and sliced pear flavours wander through the palate. Fun, mouth-wateringly succulent and with bags of character."
