Beautiful setting and excellent wine. Try the rose! The Sauvignon Blanc is exceptional. The Chardonnay excellent and the dry Riesling perfectly balanced. I loved the Pinot Noir too. Couldn't fault any of the wines. The two lovely ladies who took me through the wines were fun and I had a great time. Highly recommended!

Don't touch this, no sit there, don't don't don't. I love it when our kids, watching an iPad on a chair outside are castigated by frustrated hosts. They wonder why their grandkids don't visit. It was this back drop for the wine tasting. The late harvest Riesling is particularly good. The rest of the wines were however thoroughly pedestrian. Poor... More

Palliser Estate Winery encompasses all that is good about Martinborough wineries (and wineries in general) The cellar door staff are very welcoming, hospitable and knowledgeable, the wines are all top notch, and the location is lovely. Plus, platters prepared to "match" the wines are available for purchase and nibbling over a leisurely glass in their contemporary courtyard. And, BTW -... More

One of the wines we drink a lot -Pencarrow Pinot- so good to go to the source. Played pétanque out the back. Can walk from town - pleasant staff and worth a visit as a low key professional winery.

This was our first stop when biking around to vineyards, and set a great tone for the trip! The staff was friendly and knowledgable and we loved their little dog :)

This is a really lovely spot to enjoy a wine tasting and they now also have platters available so there is the option to taste the wines and eat. The setting both indoors and out is very nice. We enjoyed the wines but I did feel the tasting was a bit rushed as the hostess was waving the next bottle... More

This was our first stop, we were impressed by the natural kiwi homely welcome received, we went to some other vineyards for tasting, but ended up coming back to palliser for a late lunch. Anna and the team were awesome and also helped us finish a business deal! 5 star service from 5 star staff!!

Pallisers winery is just outside the town of Martinborough, you could easily walk there from the town. The winery is well appointed and for $5 you can taste a wide variety of their wines. Our tasting guide was generous with her time and informative.
