Overview

The first Winery you come to on State Highway 53 as you enter Martinborough. Look for the white gates on your left. We offer tastings and sales 7 days a week. In Summer, our Chef prepares beautiful fresh platters and lunch offerings to match with our wines. Enjoy a glass or two and friendly game of Petanque in the sun.

First nice wine and very helpful staff at an impressive venue. Whilst wet outside inside the dog kept our toddler busy for a good 30min so you could appreciate the wine and ample room for her to run around without breakibg anything.

Well appointed wine tasting venue with acceptable wines Pinot was a bit on the light forward side. Host was unenthusiastic but knowledgeable. Try other sites also with a more positive attitude Great area for wine tasting

We had a lovely wine tasting at Palliser Estate. Tastings cost $5, which is deductible from any wine purchases (which are hard to resist). Our host was very knowledgeable and friendly. The cellar door opens at 10.30am, while many others seem to open at 11.00am...More

If you're looking for a quirky, small-batch wine-tasting experience, this isn't it. But it's worth your while to come here to see how the "big guys" do it and to taste their award winning wines. Palliser Estate still considers itself a "boutique" winery, but one...More

This was mine and my husband's favorite winery in Martinborough. Loved the pinot gris, though usually not my thing. The pourer, a French woman, was very sweet and knowledgable. Recommended!! Also beanbags to sit out and enjoy!
