You’ll always receive a warm welcome at our home on Alabama Road. There’s at least six wines open for you to taste and often something a little unusual as well. For example, it might be our special co-fermented aromatic wine that we made just 50 cases of to commemorate our 25th year in 2017, or one of our very limited Pioneer wines. We have been known to offer a taste of our rich and hedonistic ‘sticky’ wines too and sometimes a little something from Blind River. Visit us during harvest and you can taste the juice from grapes pressed that day!
We also offer local cheeses, cured meats and salmon so you can ‘pick your own platter’ or bring your own picnic and enjoy some nibbles with a glass of our wine.
The picturesque courtyard affords views of our famous hills – the ones that are on our label – and you can see the original illustration hanging on the cellar door wall.
We also have Wine Art Boards from https://www.thepaperrainproject.co.nz/ beautifully crafted from our own barrels and available for sale.
Whilst there isn’t enough room for all our gold medals – there are a few on display as well as a number of our trophies, both national and international.
Tee-shirts, t-towels, aprons, caps, note books are also on offer, so you can choose a souvenir from your visit.
Our Cellar Door Manager is Nigel, but you may also meet Nevena, Julia or Tricia all of whom look forward to showing you our home and our wines.
