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.

Palliser Estate is a quaint winery that has an old world charm. We loved the wines, the conversation and the whole experience. I highly recommend a visit to this lovely winery for an authentic NZ wine tasting experience. There is an outdoor seating area.

Was nice to re-visit this place as it'd been awhile. We did a wine tasting which was nice & relaxed & informal yet informative not pressured to buy anything. The wine tasting fee was a bit ambiguous with very small signs that stated "wine information fee $5" (which we never have a problem with paying) it's just nice to know... More

Knowledgeable manager and she poured generous tastings. Lovely atmosphere with no pressure to purchase. (Although we did!, just too tasty not too). Nice sauvignon Blanc and Pinot noir very smooth.

We left this winery until last as we are so glad we did as it was well worth. The staff are so friendly and helpful and love a good laugh. The wines are soooo yummy and you just have to buy one or two or three or more!!!!!!

Sold us an open bottle of sauvignon blanc rather than the bottle of pinot noir we ordered and paid for (which was more expensive). On top of that we wanted to do the tasting but got pretty much forgotten about. Understaffed and disappointing.
