Woollaston Estates, located in Nelson, New Zealand's sunniest region, boasts award winning, organically produced fine wines, a Cellar Door with beautiful views over the vineyards, and hosts winery events such as concerts and performances.
The winery and estate-owned vineyards are certified organic under BioGro New Zealand. The vineyard sites were chosen so minimal manipulation is required to allow the grapes, soil and climate to express their full potential. The result is award winning NZ fine wines made in a style that captures the unique terroir of the Nelson region.
Fine wines produced by Woollaston Estates include the Woollaston, Tussock and Mahana brands. They are produced in a four-level gravity-fed winery built into the Mahana hillside which blends into the environment with its tussock-covered roof. The top three levels are dedicated to winemaking while the bottom level contains wine ageing in barrels, the bottling line, wine library and The Cellars which doubles as a winery working area and as a dramatic function room for concerts, winery events, weddings and dinners.
Woollaston Estates Cellar Door overlooks the Mahana vineyard, Tasman Bay, Nelson city and the Mount Arthur mountain range making it one of Nelson's most scenic wineries. The Cellar Door, with gallery, picnic lawn and courtyard is open year round to taste our award-winning New Zealand fine wines, sample lunch platters of local produce for two to share, and buy wine.
A number of winery events are held throughout the year including live bands on the lawn and concerts and performances in The Cellars. Visit our events page to find out what events are coming up soon, or sign up for email updates to be informed about winery events, winery news, vineyard news and special offers on our award wining New Zealand fine wines.
The winery complex is a beautiful place to visit and is home to a growing and significant collection of art heralded by the bold Yantra for Mahana sculpture by Marté Szirmay at the gateway. The Gallery at Woollaston adjoining the Cellar Door hosts a changing programme of contemporary, evocative and stimulating exhibitions by national and international artists.
Woollaston Estates is a scenic 30 minute drive from Nelson city. We look forward to welcoming you at the Cellar Door to sample our award winning fine wine, or attend one of our winery events. However, if you're unable to visit the winery in person, buy your wine online. NZ fine wines can be purchased in NZ via our secure online wine shop and are available in many countries worldwide.
