Owner description: Part of the Kirkpatrick Estate Winery experience must include a visit to our cellar door. Situated on the North facing side of the property, the cellar door garden overlooks the Malbec vineyard and further to the hills bordering the Patutahi Plateau. A fabulous setting for enjoying wine and antipasto in the afternoon sun. The cellar door offers individual wine tastings as well as tours through the winery and vineyard. Wine tastings and Wine Sales throughout the year. Check below for Cellar Door hours. You can visit us any time for a tasting, a glass of wine, an antipasto platter or to replenish your own cellar.

“Beautiful place to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

This is an awesome winery to visit. The wine is the best I have tasted and the food is very nice with lots of yummy choices. The scenery is absolutely beautiful - sitting under the black umbrellas on the deck watching the world go by with a lovely glass of chilled wine in my hand , eating cheese and crackers - what more could you want?
Simon and Janine are so welcoming and knowledgable. Nothing was too much trouble!
There were also some every good specials on wine - which was a bonus!
We really enjoyed our visit.

“Great hospitality, food and wine!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2013

My family did a wine tour and stopped for snacks and wine at Kirkpatrick Estate Winery - what a wonderful surprise! A spread of food fit for a king - coupled with wonderful wines and great hospitality extended by both Simon (owner) and Janine! Wonderful setting, friendly people and great wine - what more could you ask for? A definite stop if you're in the area!
