Sunny Nelson's Finest
Waimea Estate wines are distinctively vibrant and elegant – the essence of Nelson, New Zealand’s sunniest spot.
We make wines for every occasion and cuisine, from popular varieties like Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, to the Bordeaux variety Cabernet Franc, and interesting aromatics Gruner Veltliner and Albarino found few and far between in NZ.
‘Waimea’ means ‘water gardens’ in NZ’s indigenous Maori language and our vines stretch deep into the stony soils of the Waimea Plains, bringing a distinctive alluvial quality to our wines.
With a strong eco-sustainability focus, Waimea Estates also produces the Spinyback range, to honour and help protect the Tuatara – the world’s last living link to the dinosaur.
