Wines of Martinborough, NZ

Imagine this. You’ve reached the edge of the world.
You have no idea what lies beyond. And you keep going.

When Captain Cook came to New Zealand he was travelling on gut instinct. A conviction that beyond the horizon there was something great waiting. He must have really loved this place because he named our coastline Cape Palliser after his revered patron and fellow explorer Admiral Hugh Palliser.

This is now the region where we make our wine. Great wines that deliver on the promise of standing on the edge of the world and then going that little bit further.

Selection from our wine cellar


Om Santi Single Vineyard 2020 Chardonnay released

We are excited to be releasing our 2020 Om Santi Vineyard Chardonnay. Located on the famous Martinborough Terrace our Omi Santi Vineyard was one of our first to be planted and one of the first to become certified organic. It is the perfect place to grow Chardonnay and offers a true reflection of site, soul and season – In fact the beauty of Martinborough full stop!

This will be a reduced menu  using local seasonal ingredients –  it will include grazing plates, desserts and the odd seasonal special, all created to match Palliser’s beautiful wines and to be enjoyed in the park-like surrounds of Palliser’s home vineyard and winery.
