Regions explained Marlborough

Marlborough

What is it that makes the wines of Marlborough so distinctive? As with any of the great winemaking regions of the world, the answer lies in a magical synergy of climate and soil, underpinned by a desire to express this unique terroir. Here in the north-eastern corner of New Zealand’s South Island, bound by the Pacific Ocean to the east and towering mountain ranges in the hinterlands to the north and south, a broad alluvial plain stretches from the coastline, gradually rising into narrow valleys with favourable northerly aspects. Albarino, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay together with world famous Sauvignon Blanc have placed Marlborough at the very epicentre of modern wine drinking trends. With constant innovation and experimentation paving the way for future generations, there is no better time to discover Marlborough.
