Established in 2008, the Yealands Estate Winery and surrounding Seaview Vineyard is located in the rolling foothills of the Awatere Valley, Marlborough. For years, this area was regarded as unsuitable for grape growing but Peter Yealands thought differently and transformed this rugged terrain with a vision to create the world’s most sustainable winery.
Yealands was the world’s first winery to be certified carboNZero and continues to pursue innovative initiatives to maintain its place at the forefront of sustainable winemaking. Some of our sustainability initiatives include constructing one of New Zealand’s largest solar panel installations on the winery roof as well as introducing the world’s largest flock of miniature Babydoll sheep to the vineyard to help maintain the grass between the vines.
Since inception, Yealands has won 20 trophies and 1000+ wine awards including "New Zealand Wine Producer of the Year" at the International Wine & Spirit Competition 2014 in London, proving that you can make award-winning wines sustainably in harmony with nature.
You can visit our cosy Cellar Door where you can discover the Yealands Estate story and try our quality portfolio of wines. Recently awarded the International Winner for Sustainable Wine Tourism Practices, our Cellar Door demonstrates our world leadership in sustainable wine production.
