Wairau River Wines Marlborough

Wairau River Wines Marlborough is one of the largest independent wine estates in Marlborough and has a suitably impressive cellar door and restaurant to match.

We enjoyed a tasting at Wairau River from a very informative guide and one of our favourite things about this vineyard was that we were encouraged to take a wonder out in the vineyard amongst the vines.

The restaurant has lovely seating with verandas that leads straight out to the vineyards, it was wonderful to be able to take a stroll around.

The unique aspect of the wines produced here are that the vineyards are completely family owned which they believe enables better quality control from fruit to bottle. Wairau River offer an estate and a reserve range and their flagship wine is of course their Sauvignon Blanc.

The restaurant menu looked absolutely delicious! Would love to have eaten here had we need been so full already.
