Woollaston Estates – A Growing Force in Nelson

06-Mar-2011
Established in 2000 by Phillip and Chan Woollaston with Glenn and Renee Schaeffer, Woollaston Estates wowed onlookers with its imposing gravity-fed winery and three selected vineyard sites, two in the Moutere Hills and one on the Waimea Plains. Fitting in with the sophisticated arts scene of Nelson, the winery is adorned with fabulous art work. Winemaker is Andrew Sutherland, and the vineyards are under the care of Julian Coakley, both formerly of Neudorf Vineyards. As the vineyards, converted to organic management, come into balance, and the team become familiar with the characteristics of the fruit, increasingly attractive wines are sure to be made. www.woollaston.co.nz
