“Escarpment, defined as a long, steep slope that lies at the end of a plateau, is our unique place within Martinborough. Big open skies stretch across the Wairarapa, ‘glistening waters’ in te reo Māori, and the ancient alluvial soils run deep beneath the land. There is natural balance here.
At Escarpment Winery, our purpose is to translate that balance into wines that reflect these special attributes, this special part of Aotearoa, New Zealand.
Over the last 35 years, we have created an expression of Martinborough Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris. Sculpted by Winemaker Tim Bourne and Viticulturist Rowan Hoskins from fruit entirely originating from Martinborough vineyards on the fabled alluvial gravels. We are focused on creating wines with an identifiable structure, complexity and fruit expression that reflect their distinctive sites and their regional Martinborough accent.
We’re thrilled to welcome you to our home on Te Muna Road and offer a unique tasting experience in Martinborough.
Set aside approximate 1 hour for an unhurried, guided tour and tasting with one of our knowledgeable team members. We’re offering an intimate tasting of wines, on occasions including barrel tastings and vintage cellar selects.
Bookings only available for groups up to 10 people.
