Established on the Waimea Plains in 1993 by the toil and triumph of two generations of the Bolitho Family - Waimea Estates is one of Nelson's larger producers with over 140 hectares of their own vineyards. Reflecting Nelson’s warm maritime climate with cool coastal breezes, Waimea’s wines are approachable and offer a breadth of flavours – perfect for pairing with fresh local produce.

Waimea's export varieties are based on highly awarded Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir, and over the years Waimea has gathered 150+ Gold Medals and 26 Trophies across nine different wine styles - proving the versatility Waimea and the Nelson region provides.
