Allan Scott Fam­ily Wine­mak­ers

New Zealand Classic Car - - Summer Wine Guide -

Mil­lions of tons of grapes, a restau­rant, and an el­e­gant wed­ding venue are all part of what makes the 25-year-old Blen­heim-based busi­ness, Allan Scott Fam­ily Wine­mak­ers. Vis­it­ing the vine­yard is an im­pres­sive ex­pe­ri­ence. The gar­dens and build­ings alone leave a strik­ing im­pres­sion, and whether you’re a so­cial sipper or a se­ri­ous wine con­nois­seur, you’ll be very pleased with what you get to ex­pe­ri­ence dur­ing your visit.

With heavy de­mand for its wines in more than 20 coun­tries around the world, there’s no doubt that the Allan Scott fam­ily is con­tribut­ing to New Zealand’s rep­u­ta­tion for beau­ti­ful wines.

The Twelve Trees Vine­yard Restau­rant ad­joins the cel­lar door, and of­fers tast­ings of se­lected va­ri­etals and vin­tages. Named af­ter the orig­i­nal wal­nut trees that lined the en­trance to the win­ery, the restau­rant is open seven days a week from 9am to 4.30pm for brunch and lunch, with a menu de­signed to em­pha­size Marl­bor­ough, and com­ple­ment the Allan Scott range of wines.

Visi­tors are in­vited to ex­plore the im­mac­u­late gar­dens with foun­tains and giant chess, taste Allan Scott’s fa­mous wines in the cel­lar-door shop, and browse through its unique gifts. Win­ery tours and evening func­tions can be or­ga­nized by ar­range­ment.
