Palliser Wines is one of New Zealand's premier wine brands, grown and produced right here in the Wairarapa and found not only throughout Martinborough and the Wairarapa, but in the world's leading restaurants, hotels and airlines!
Visit their Cellar Door which is open every day when you're next in town. You can also book for these two extra-ordinary tours (NB - bookings 24 hours in advance are required for these two experiences below and they're subject to availability):
- Wine & Cheese pairing ($45) - a seated, semi-private tasting that includes a selection of NZ cheese paired with Palliser wines. Guided by one of the team, with a maximum of 10 guests. Approx. 45 minutes.
- Barrel Tasting ($55) - guided by one of the team guests will be taken into the barrel hall to taste a selection of barrels, learn about the blending process, and wind up in the underground cellar to taste a small selection of current wines. Maximum 8 guests and approx. 45 minutes.
With an appointment Palliser Wines can also cater for large groups (up to 20 people) and will work with you to tailor your experience.
Tasting platters are available Friday to Sunday during Summer (from Labout weekend to March) in the beautifully landscaped courtyard.
