The first Winery you come to on State Highway 53 as you enter Martinborough. Look for the white gates on your left. We offer tastings and sales 7 days a week. In Summer, our Chef prepares beautiful fresh platters and lunch offerings to match with our wines. Enjoy a glass or two and friendly game of Petanque in the sun.

We arrived before 2 big groups and enjoyed the wine tasting, we were too late to grab an afternoon tea, however due to the group that was probably a good thing. We would add this to the list for a visit again.

Stopped here as the first winery on our wine trail. The setting is very nice with outdoor tables and well maintained grounds. The wine tasting was quick with good explanations. Staff were friendly. A good start to our wine trail experience.

And a lovely little outdoor seating area. The wine tasting was a bit interrupted by the kitchen next door. All I could smell was spices from some kind of fajitas!

This is the only small winery I've been to in the world that charges $5 for a tiny tasting when you buy 3 bottles of wine.

Tried a wine tasting of five wines. Enjoyed the flavours but the place was busy and very little attention given to us ((it was close to closing time) bought a bottle of Pinot Gris. Nice wines but attention to testers not so good.

Palliser Estate was our first stop on a wine tasting tour of Martinborough. It has earlier opening hours than most of the other wineries so is a good starting location. Wines received good feedback from our group as did the beautiful location. Cellar Door staff...More

Palliser Estates Winery was our first wine tasting stop in the Martinborough region. Visually, the place looks nice but the wine tasting room itself was a bit loud (poor acoustics) which made it difficult to hear what the wine person said. The wines were ok....More

A really beautiful setting under the trees - a nice place to drink wine and have a platter. I would have liked to stay longer.

Thanks for the lovely review Carlos. Make sure you come back in Summer for our delicious lunch platters and a game of Petanque.

Palliser Estate was my first port of call on an autumn Friday in Martinborough. Focused on whites and bought the Pinot Gris which is delicious. Attentive and friendly service and the wine is served in real glasses, not those nasty little plastic thimbles.
