Marble Point Winery

Attraction details
Owner description: Marble Point Winery is situated just 13km south from the small alpine village of Hanmer Springs heading towards Christchurch. We are the only vineyard in this area; at 297m above sea level, we are among New Zealand's highest altitude vineyards. Our situation on the banks of the Waiau River and the micro climate it creates allows us to grows grapes where many people thought we would fail. Varieties grown are Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Noir. We are open for tastings 10am to 5pm Daily.

Marble point is set in a picturesque location. the staff are friendly and helpful. as for the wines, they are young, but given that, they are also reasonably cheap, although if you want real cheap go to a supermarket! I understand they are in the process of building a cafe

Glad you enjoyed our beautiful surroundings. Our vineyard was planted in 2004, vine age is something you have to wait for, but our young vines are producing some pretty good wines, nothing rated under 3 stars since our first vintage in 2008, we presently have 5 available for purchase with a bronze award and all our present wines are rated V or V+ from Michael Cooper, which means they are a very good price for the quality of wine. We can't compete with supermarket pricing, if we did we would go broke. But I love grabing a wine bargin from the supermarket great way to try lots of different wines without hurting the BB to much.

The Marble Point Winery was in the most beautiful setting overlooking the river. The wine is ever so nice on the taste buds and we indulged in quite a few bottles. The wine tasting was great and the staff were very helpful with their advice.
