When Peter Yealands first discovered a little-known, but spectacular,...

When Peter Yealands first discovered a little-known, but spectacular, corner of Marlborough, an incredible story began to unfold. By 08.08.08, through a bold vision and a capacity for sheer hard work that few could comprehend, Peter was standing alongside his world-leading carboNZeroCertTM Yealands Estate winery with his sights firmly set upon becoming the world's most sustainable wine producer. Combining the very latest cutting-edge green technology and highly innovative thinking, the Yealands name quickly became synonymous with a passion for crafting ultra-premium wines in the most environmentally-friendly manner.

Our cosy and intimate Cellar Door provides a relaxing hideaway where you can discover the Yealands Estate story and try our quality portfolio of wines whilst relaxing in unhurried comfort.

Recently awarded the International Winner for Sustainable Wine Tourism Practices, our Cellar Door demonstrates our world leadership in sustainable wine production.

Join us for a complimentary tasting of our wines and take in the picturesque views across the vineyard and Cook Strait on our self-guided vineyard tour.

As this is on the road to Kaikoura which has been blocked by landslides since the big earthquake in 2016 its good to make the effort to go over and visit, especially for the businesses of Seddon hit hard with the lack of road traffic. Anyway its also worth visiting for the most amazing grounds and views just wow. Take... More

Stopped in to go out to the coast and see the ocean views....these were well worth the bit of a drive to see...would be spectacular at the beginning or end of the day. Tried a couple of the wines GORGEOUS....we just turned up .... I guess if you wanted to do the tour it would pay to ring.

A visit to Yealands today with my partner. Amazing place! We discovered the brand but we had that "Waw" effect when we entered the Cellar Door. Very nice cellar door - so much impressed about the size of that winery! After the tasting we left the cellar door and we did the tour of the vineyards which is AMAZING! A... More

We were totally blown away at the size of Yealands and also extremely impressed with the environmentally friendly approach Peter has developed in every aspect of the winery. The wines are superb, especially the baby doll Sauvignon Blanc and the sparkling Pinot Gris blush. It's possibly the last winery heading south, but it is an absolute must to visit. I... More

Stunning vineyard with incredible views. Its worth the drive from blenheim. They show a brief 8 minute movie about the why and how. The staff at the tastings were fabulous. Full of knowledge and so friendly. Also well worth taking the white road drive around the vineyard. Its signposted at various points to describe what you're seeing. Lots of picnic... More

Short drive out of Blenheim, the sea views are amazing. The vineyard property is a showcase. Congrats on all the eco work that gets done! The self drive is a must. The wines are lovely too.

Yealands is an innovative winery - taking care of the land and producing exceptional wines. We were here for a wine tasting (that included a short video) and we were impressed with the wines and the whole area. They probably have the best Sauvignon Blanc I've ever had - I m not a white wine fan, but I enjoyed this.... More
