When Peter Yealands first discovered a little-known, but spectacular, corner of Marlborough, an incredible story began to unfold. By 08.08.08, through a bold vision and a capacity for sheer hard work that few could comprehend, Peter was standing alongside his world-leading carboNZeroCertTM Yealands Estate winery with his sights firmly set upon becoming the world's most sustainable wine producer. Combining the very latest cutting-edge green technology and highly innovative thinking, the Yealands name quickly became synonymous with a passion for crafting ultra-premium wines in the most environmentally-friendly manner. Our cosy and intimate Cellar Door provides a relaxing hideaway where you can discover the Yealands Estate story and try our quality portfolio of wines whilst relaxing in unhurried comfort. Recently awarded the International Winner for Sustainable Wine Tourism Practices, our Cellar Door demonstrates our world leadership in sustainable wine production. Join us for a complimentary tasting of our wines and take in the picturesque views across the vineyard and Cook Strait on our self-guided vineyard tour.

Fascinating place. Do see the video - only lasts 7 minutes but is really interesting - I wish it had been longer. Then drive through the vineyard for spectacular views.

We were 'blown away' by the expansive sea views and field after field of vines. Loved the 'music in the vines' (wished we had planned to taking a picnic!) Interesting cellar door with video of vineyard's history.

NZ係一個盛產白酒既地方,而blenheim就有好多winery可以去參觀同試飲🍷。雖然我地都好紅酒多啲,但一場黎到點都要試下. 而我地,簡左yealand. 出發lu~~~ 入到Yealand之後,佢會俾啲free wine tasting我地,同我地講解下,入面仲可以買佢地既酒🍷! 之後我地就參觀佢地個vineyard. 好大啊!呢度揸車圍住外面行,都要十五分鐘! 就咁望落去好似無盡頭咁咖!! 唔怪佢地有咁多葡萄整咁多酒~~ 🍇 我番香港之後,都有見到yealand既酒賣.可想到佢地幾咁多產量!!

All I can say is "Wow." This vineyard, located in the Awatere Valley, is beautiful! Since they no longer do winery tours because of health concerns, they show a short movie (about 7 minutes) then you can sample their very good wines in the tasting...More

Hi there - from Picton it would be approximately 45 minutes to one hours drive out to Yealands Estate and you could definitely make your own way out here - it is a beautiful scenic drive. If you decided to use a tour bus I... More
