Brancott Estate sees wine differently, unlocking a world of opportunity in a region considered too cold for grapes.
Since planting the first Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir in 1975, Brancott Estate has continued craft striking wines to suit every occasion, including naturally lower alcohol, sparkling, organic, oak-infused and age-worthy expressions of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. In addition they have led the revival of Sauvignon Gris, an almost extinct varietal now enjoying a global resurgence.
This relentless desire to capture the bright, fresh flavour of Marlborough has seen Brancott Estate wines enjoyed in more than 50 countries around the world.
Overlooking Brancott Vineyard, site of the first Sauvignon Blanc plantings in Marlborough, Brancott Estate Cellar Door and Restaurant is one of Marlborough’s premier cellar doors.
