Overview

When Peter Yealands first discovered a little-known, but spectacular, corner of Marlborough, an incredible story began to unfold. By 08.08.08, through a bold vision and a capacity for sheer hard work that few could comprehend, Peter was standing alongside his world-leading carboNZeroCertTM Yealands Estate winery with his sights firmly set upon becoming the world's most sustainable wine producer. Combining the very latest cutting-edge green technology and highly innovative thinking, the Yealands name quickly became synonymous with a passion for crafting ultra-premium wines in the most environmentally-friendly manner. Our cosy and intimate Cellar Door provides a relaxing hideaway where you can discover the Yealands Estate story and try our quality portfolio of wines whilst relaxing in unhurried comfort. Recently awarded the International Winner for Sustainable Wine Tourism Practices, our Cellar Door demonstrates our world leadership in sustainable wine production. Join us for a complimentary tasting of our wines and take in the picturesque views across the vineyard and Cook Strait on our self-guided vineyard tour.

Recommended by our host, specialist in wine, we drove 20 min from Blenheim to reach yealands estate. What a blast. Probably one of the nicest winery in the South Island. Go there, taste the wine, have a drive in the estate, it is unique.
