Woollaston Estates in Nelson was formed in 2000 when Philip and Chan Woollaston met Glenn and Renée Schaeffer and discovered they shared a vision of creating an estate where fine wines would be crafted. 

They also share a love of art, literature and the Nelson landscape, so their dream was to develop a winery that was not only highly functional, but was also sensitive to the natural aesthetic of the area and reflected their creative passion.

It is often said that great wine is made in the vineyard – all our grapes are estate-grown, enabling us to control quality from the vineyard to the bottle.

Each of our vineyard sites was chosen for its unique character; the flavours that terroir and careful, hands-on viticulture give the fruit are subtly enhanced by the gentle handling of our gravity-fed winery.
