Astrolabe Wines

Simon’s winemaking career began in South Australia and took him and his family from Te Kauwhata to Gisborne, eventually settling in Marlborough. In 1996, together with old friends Paul Davenport and Sally Lewis, Simon and his wife Jane decided to have a go at making wine under their own label… and so began Astrolabe.

Our grapes are sourced entirely from unique Marlborough sites to add layers of complexity to our wines. Each site was chosen for the distinctive flavour it produces. We work with dedicated growers who understand the rhythms of the land and know how to grow grapes that express the terroir.

Tastings are welcome by prior arrangement only – please contact us.
