Nautilus Estate of Marlborough

We are a family-owned winery and member of the Family of Twelve; Twelve prestigious family-owned wineries around New Zealand.

Whilst Nautilus wines can be enjoyed on their own, belief in the marriage of fine wine with food is a driving force for winemaker Clive Jones as he crafts each into a sophisticated and elegant wine.
