Palliser Estate Martinborough Cellar Door

Welcome to our Palliser Estate Cellar Door, nestled amongst our vines here in Martinborough, Wairarapa, New Zealand.

Wine tasting, wine flights, vineyard lunches, a glass of wine in the sun, or a bottle to take home - we can't wait to share our Palliser Estate wines with you.

We’re typically open seven days a week, year round, although there are some key public holidays that we're unable to open. We're currently running our summer hours, so we're open from 11.00am to 5.00pm for wine sales and tastings.
Our Palliser Kitchen by Attilio runs a full, Italian-inspired lunch menu from Thursday to Monday.
On Tuesday and Wednesday you can share Palliser Platters to accompany your wine tasting or wine flight.
We look forward to welcoming you at our Cellar Door.

Wine Tasting

Palliser Estate welcomes you to experience our award-winning Martinborough wines - some of the best from the Wairarapa region, and New Zealand.

During our guided wine tastings, Belen, our trained sommelier, and her Cellar Door Team will introduce you to the character of Martinborough through a selection of our Palliser Estate wines. These are all sourced from our vineyards in and around this beautiful wine village, on the famed Martinborough Terrace, the terroir of which is well known for producing acclaimed Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Our guided wine tastings are approximately 45min, and you'll hear from Belen and some of our Palliser personalities about our history, our land, our sustainability and organic journey, and of course, our gorgeous wines.

Guided wine tastings are $15 per person, with $10 deducted off the purchase of any take-home wine bottles. For large group bookings of 10 or more, depending on availability, we can book exclusive use of our tasting room - please contact us at or +64 6 306 9019 to enquire about pricing and availability.

We also offer a selection of self-guided tasting flights.

Join us for nourishing, Italian-inspired, seasonal plates by Attilio, with a full lunch menu from Thursday to Monday.
