Welcome to Brodie Estate, Martinborough. The home of wonderful pinot noir, olive oil, art and boutique accommodation in the heart of the Wairarapa. Join us at the Cellar Door to taste our wines including the latest releases and some wines that are not available anywhere else. Relax with a platter of specially matched gourmet cheeses and a flight of our wines, or enjoy a glass of wine of your choice, on the Pavilion or on the grass among the wildflowers or under the olive trees. We look foward to seeing you. We are open every day during the summer season except Christmas Day.
2014 vintage is in the barrel. It was a great vintage for us. Great flavours in the grapes. Depth of colour was very marked in the ferments. 30% new French barrels were used. This will be another vintage to look forward to. Our Provence style Rose is now bottled and available from the Cellar Door or our online shop. We are barrel fermenting Chardonnay this year in a new puncheon and older oak barriques. The grapes are from a well established Martinborough vineyard. The wine is going through malo at present and we will bottle this in time for Christmas.

Sam Kim has recently carried out a vertical tasting of our wines. You can read his reviews on our our wine page. Here is what he said about our 2011 Brodie Estate pinot noir: ~ It's beautifully elegant and stylish, displaying red/black cherry, floral and subtle spice aromas on the nose. The palate is juicy and delicately flavoured with fine texture and polished tannins, finishing elegantly dry. The wine offers lovely ripe flavours within a sturdy frame, ensuring its graceful development. 93 points and Five Stars.
