Villa Maria Review

This mass producer has several wineries nationally and Marlborough's benefits from good design and a central position. The building has strong architectural presence with a soothing tussock-lined water feature out front. Their major grape variety in Marlborough is sauvignon blanc but they also grow pinot noir, chardonnay, pinot gris and Riesling. Tastings include their wines from other regions, for example their heavier Hawke's Bay red, of which there are few in Marlborough.
