Framingham Wines

Our Riesling vines are amongst the oldest in Marlborough; planted in 1981 they were some of the first vines grafted on phylloxera resistant rootstock in the area.

The original vineyard was established by Wellington engineer Rex Brooke-Taylor who took the name Framingham from his ancestral home town near Norwich, England.

Our initial releases were produced using other wineries’ facilities. The first wine released under the Framingham name was a 1994 Riesling. Our winery and tasting room were built in 1997, and a specialist red wine handling facility and barrel hall was added in 2002. We produced wine from our new winery on Conders Bend Road in the Wairau Valley for the first time in 1998.

Today we are a family-owned Sogrape company; our range includes Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Noir, Viognier and Montepulciano. In past years we have also produced Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Pinotage, Merlot, Merlot-Malbec, Chenin Blanc and Methode Champenoise.

Tasting Room

An underground cellar and elegant tasting rooms open onto an aromatic rose-planted courtyard. These facilities are open to visitors 7 days per week from 10am to 5pm in summer and from 11am to 4pm in winter.
