We visited Milcrest estate during a self-guided tour with the Gentle Cycling Company and rank it as the best for both the wines and the hostess of all the vineyards we visited across New Zealand. Definitely include on your itinerary.

We first tried Milcrest's red wines last year and fell in love. Nelson isn't known for Pinot Noir or Syrahs, but these folks are proving that something special is possible. We love taking friends and family out to the cellar door - Terry is so hospitable and makes us feel like he has all the time in the world.

If looking for somewhere a bit different from a hotel, then this is the place. Great hosts and great rooms. Beautiful and peaceful. Tried the cycling around a few wineries which was cool, but found Terry at Milcrest knowledgeable and their wines were great. Will be back. If just after some wine knowledge on your journey best place to stop.

Great location and even better owners in Terry and Christine (and their great dog!!). All wines are great tasting and worth a look

By far my most favorite Sauvignon Blanc of all the ones tasted in and around Nelson (and there were quite a few...)

I visited on a Bay Tours wine tasting day. Terry was hugely informative on the wine making process and how he made his particular wines. 2010 Syrah was a winner. No obligation ot buy - friendly banter and a huge cute dog to play with.

Milcrest Estate is a family run vineyard in Nelson on the South Island New Zealand. We stayed in the Sauvignon Blanc Suite. The other suite is called the Pinot Noir. We were spoilt by Terry and Christine. Brilliant hosts. We had a cooked breakfast brought to our room every morning. We could also have had a continental breakfast. There was... More
