Nestled in Nelson’s sheltered Waimea Plains, Waimea makes a range of vibrant wines inspired by the abundance of flavours from the region. Waimea means ‘river gardens’ in Maori and our award-winning wines have a distinctive alluvial quality. They are perfect for pairing with fresh local produce.

Established on the Waimea Plains by the toil and triumph of two generations of the Bolitho family, Waimea offers a breadth of flavours and the opportunity to try new varietals, with over 10 different wines in the range. Reflecting Nelson’s warm maritime climate with cool coastal breezes, Waimea wines are approachable with a refined acid profile – and a history of winning trophies in NZ and abroad.
