The Cellar Door

Our stylish award winning cellar door is open all year around (recent winner of the Resene Total Colour Neutrals Award). 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.

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.
