Family-owned Waimea Estates is one of Nelson's larger producers with over 140 hectares of their own vineyards. The cool climate and alluvial soils of Nelson's Waimea plains combined with the highest sunshine hours in New Zealand allow vibrant, fruit-focused wines to be made. Waimea's export varieties are based on highly awarded Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir, and over the years Waimea has gathered 149 Gold Medals and 26 Trophies across nine different wine styles - proving the versatility Waimea and the Nelson region provides.
The full range of Waimea’s award-winning wines is available matched with our seasonal menu – supporting local growers and producers. The region has some of the best seafood, vegetables, cheese and olive oils in the country. The menu caters to everybody with gluten free, dairy free, vegan and healthy options available.
