Must see · Winery / Vineyard · Food & Drink
Established in Marlborough’s Awatere Valley, at the north-eastern tip of New Zealand’s South Island and amongst some of the region’s toughest viticultural conditions, the story of Yealands Family Wines was always going to be one of thinking differently.

On 08.08.08, having completed the enormous task of sculpting his vast rolling terroir from behind the wheel of his digger, Peter Yealands opened the landmark Yealands Estate Winery. With designed-in sustainability features and cutting-edge SMART green technology, it was the first in the world to be carboNZeroCertTM from inception.

Yealands Family Wines quickly became synonymous with bespoke premium quality wine. Within eight vintages, the talented team has won 25 trophies and more than 1,200 awards. Most recently the Yealands Estate Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015 collected two trophies, one at the Air New Zealand Wine Awards 2016 for Best Red Wine and another at the Cathay Pacific Hong Kong International Wine & Spirits Competition 2016 for Best Wine with honey glazed char siu.

The previous year Yealands Estate Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2015 collected two trophies at the Cathy Pacific Hong Kong International Wine & Spirits Competition 2015, for Best New World Sauvignon Blanc and Best Wine from New Zealand, and named Sauvignon Blanc of the Year Australia New Zealand at the Winestate Wine of the Year Awards 2015.

  • Stunning Winery. Allowed to do a Self Drive Tour around part of the Winery. Plenty of Scenic Stops. Must register at the Wine Cellar first though
  • Amazing winery! Great little movie to start, really interesting to learn about the winery and what they stand for. The tastings and nibbles were delicious, in a comfortable setting and pace. The self drive tour was something a bit different, great to see the animals and get a feel for the vineyard and it’s location.
