Spy Valley Wines

You can’t help but be impressed by this cellar door, which isn’t surprising as the building has won numerous architectural and landscape awards. Flowing native grasses, water features, large stainless-steel sculptures and a light-filled, spacious cellar door all add to the magic of the visit. The only cellar door currently operating in the Waihopai Valley, it should definitely be on your itinerary.

Things To Know
Owned by Bryan and Jan Johnson, Spy Valley Wines is another family-owned winery, and has grown substantially since its launch in 2000. The cooler conditions in this part of Marlborough have added to the intensity of flavours emanating from the wines, and resulted in a plethora of awards.

Our Pick 
The single-vineyard Envoy range is the company’s premium range and every wine is special. However, the gewurztraminer is particularly noteworthy.
