The Cellar Door

Our stylish cellar door is open all year around. Needless to say we always have a warm welcome ready and a great selection of wines for you to taste. You might even want to take a few home with you.  Clem and her team are on hand to take you through the wines. They’re sure to make it a fun experience.

Wine & Food

What goes well with a great glass of your favourite wine? A gorgeous meal, expertly paired and designed especially to enrich your wine tasting experience.

October to early March, Friday to Sunday, we offer delicious tasting plates by Carême, our onsite cooking school. Sit back and enjoy a glass of our wine in our beautifully landscaped courtyard matched with one of the handcrafted plates by Jo Crabb, Carême’s owner and chef. Delicious wine, equally delicious food – it’s a winning combination. Email if you wish to make a booking

“Palliser has a rich and proud heritage – one I feel privileged and excited to build on.”


Cooking School

Wine, like people, can be judged by the company it keeps. That’s why we pick only the best to go with our wine.

Influential Martinborough chef Jo Crabb makes food that will set your taste buds alight and, what’s more, she’s happy to share her secrets with you. So don’t just take away our wine, take away the skills to create beautiful food to go with it as well. Jo runs her Carême Cooking classes on-site in the Palliser kitchen for up to twelve people.

Conference Space

Opening any bottle of our wines is an event but if you’d like to share that event with us we have the perfect place – our place. Our beautiful conference room is available for meetings, conferences or small functions. It has a capacity for 25-30 people and equipped with all you need. Jo who runs Carême Cooking classes on-site is happy to offer catering for your event.
