Steve Pellett and Bridget Ennals established Stanley Estates vineyard in the Awatere Valley in Marlborough after travelling the world. Sharing a passion for adventure, wine, viticulture and environment, they established their boutique vineyard in 2003. The vineyards are located in the north of New Zealand’s South Island, under the cool gaze of Mount Tapuae-O-Uenuku, in Marlborough’s spectacular Awatere Valley, where sunny days and cool nights ripen grapes slowly.
Sustainable viticulture has been the foundation of the vineyard practices since the outset. To them, sustainability is their philosophy and underpins all activities on the vineyard, big or small, each growing season. Their wines reveal the unique character of the region, the minerality, luscious aromatics and tropical fruit flavors, all grown, produced and accredited to Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand standards. Refreshing wines for all occasions, to enjoy after a day of adventure or with friends.
