Highfield Estate

With a northerly aspect toward the Richmond Ranges, the “Tower” at Highfield Estate is one of Marlborough’s most visited sites. Views encompassing the Wairau Valley vineyards form a lasting impression of Marlborough as a unique wine making region.

Situated on the Brookby Ridge with unsurpassed views of Marlborough’s Wairau Valley vineyards.
The restaurant specialises in matching delicious fresh local produce with the ever so food friendly Highfield wines. Constantly changing seasons and delvelopment of the wines keeps the menu exciting and varied. The wine and food harmonies are created by the Chef and the Winemaker to give you one of the best culinary experiences in the Wairau Valley.

This modern Tuscan-style winery has so far produced a commercial range of wines marked by safety rather than excitement. Its premium label, Elstree, has rarely commanded the quality or flair expected within its price bracket. The one exception is the Elstree Cuveé Méthode Traditionnelle, a light, elegant, blend of equal parts chardonnay and pinot noir. The arrival of winemaker Alistair Soper may improve past performance.
