Millton Winery is probably the most prestigious wine experience we could have hoped for in Gisborne. Superb wine and exquisite cheese board were only completing the insightful commentary from Simon, the cellar manager of the day.

Two couples 'discovered' this vineyard down a side road - not a planned visit. Of the three vineyards in this area, Millton was the most charming - a traditional setting and the host very informative and helpful. There was no charge here for tasting unlike the others. Most definitely worth a visit - try their Chenin Blanc - so good... More

Very good tasting of 5 of their wines. These wines are very well made, not after the mass market I would say. Following bio-dynamic farming practices and what must be a very good palate of the winemaker/s you will be in for a treat at this tasting. The balance achieved in each of the wines was very noticeable. Try all... More

Well, I think the above title says it all! Millton winery is a well-established producer of fine wines. They were among the earliest - if not the premier producer of organic wines - but don't drink the wines for that. Drink them because they are fabulous. After very generous tastings, we sat in the lovely courtyard and enjoyed beautiful platters... More

I expected the usual... A quick tasting of whatever was on offer, buy a bottle or two and go on our merry way. This turned out to be a 2 1/2 hour journey through James and Annie's passion about wine and biodynamic wine production through the eyes of Simon. We even had a quick tour of the facility. But this...

After visiting quite a few vineyards all over NZ, this gem is a must! We got to sample 6 beautiful wines. The Chenin blanc was the nicest I've ever had and we finished with a desert wine, a 1998 vintage!! I think what topped our visit was the impromptu guide of the vineyard, production and warehouse, that we didn't even... More

We arrived on a Tuesday afternoon for a tasting session. Simon greeted & made us feel very welcome. He was full of interesting information on the production of these fine wines. Milton Vineyard is a place of depth & character their approach on Biodynamic farming, coupled with their philosophy for quality was both refreshing and an invigorating experience. Highly recommend...

A beautiful setting vineyard, close to Gisborne . Good selection of wines for tasting and a free glass is included in the $5 tasting fee. Loved the Reisling and will be buying more of it!
