The Cellar Door

During the festive season we are open every day except Christmas and Boxing days. We recommend you book ahead to avoid missing out on your tasting or dining experience here at Palliser over this busy time.

Our stylish award winning 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.

We are open all year round, 7 days a week.
Winter hours:    11am – 4pm

Food – Egmont at Palliser

We are excited to announce that one of the Capitals best loved restaurants, Egmont Street Eatery, is setting up a satellite operation at Palliser Estate winery in Martinborough for the 2020/21 summer months, offering bistro style lunch dishes and grazing plates.

‘Egmont at Palliser’ will be serving their trademark culinary goodness inspired by the producers and food artisans of the Wairarapa, all created to match Palliser’s beautiful wines and to be enjoyed in the park-like surrounds of Palliser’s home vineyard and winery.

From the 19th November, ‘Egmont at Palliser’ will be open five days a week (Thursday – Monday), 11am – 5pm. The menu will evolve with the season and is designed for the relaxed, summer environment – be it in bean bags on the lawn, shady tables in the courtyard or in the newly renovated dining room. It’s definitely the place to be this summer!

Booking encouraged and essential for groups over 6. – Email Claire ( or call 021 187 1673 to make a booking
