The Brancott Estate Wines Cellar Door is located in the stunning Brancott Estate Heritage Centre, on an elevated position overlooking the original Brancott Vineyard. The location highlights the beauty of the iconic Marlborough landscape, and celebrates the home of the original Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc plantings, a varietal that has gone on to become the world’s favourite New Zealand wine style.

In 1975, Brancott Vineyard was the site of Brancott Wines first Sauvignon Blanc plantings in Marlborough – a decision that went against the popular opinion of the time that suggested the South Island was too cold to grow wine grapes. By indulging their curiosity and backing their belief in this land, they soon proved this opinion wasn’t founded, with their very first vintage of the varietal winning an award.

The release of the first Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc vintage in 1979 was the beginning of a phenomenon which, not only placed New Zealand firmly on the international wine map, but has since become a shining example of the quality of wine that can be produced from t land.

Today, Brancott Vineyard continues to be a source of inspiration for the Brancott winemakers, not only proving that anything is possible with a curious nature, but that their belief in this land and their knowledge of how to obtain the best from it can result in award winning wines enjoyed the world over.

The Brancott Estate Heritage Centre features a restaurant specialising in fresh regional produce, unique wine tastings and tours, an opportunity to see the endangered New Zealand Falcon and premium hosting facilities, any visit to Marlborough should include a stop at the Brancott Estate Heritage Centre.
