Fodor's Review

At this estate where the region's first Sauvignon Blanc wines were planted, striking views stretch across the heart of Marlborough's Wairau Valley vineyards, and tastings are available along with a meal in what is arguably one of Marlborough's finest winery restaurants, open for lunch (book ahead in summer). Sauvignon Blanc is the star here, but the Pinot Noir also has great merit. You can get some exercise while tasting by taking a guided cycle tour through the vineyard. Brancott is a major supporter of preservation efforts of the rare New Zealand falcon (which actually helps vineyards by keeping the mice at bay). The annual Marlborough Wine and Food Festival, one of New Zealand's original wine festivals, is held each summer at Brancott.
