We don't make perfect moments, just the wine to go with them.

Whether it's a laughter-filled feast with family and friends with clinking of glasses and the wonderful aromas of home cooking. Or taking a special getaway to place where you can truly relax, unwind and reconnect to what’s important. Immerse yourself in your favorite things, refuel your soul, pour a glass, sit back and sip in the moment.

At Villa Maria, wine is the lens through which we express ourselves and New Zealand’s breath-taking landscape. Wines grown sustainably in wind cooled valleys, between shifting mountains and crashing seas, bottled at our winery in the crater of a volcano. We capture this energy to create wines that transform every sip into a delicious indulgence.

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

The room-filling aromatics and strikingly crisp character of our iconic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc are why it is so popular and such a memorable experience.

Dig a little deeper and you’ll uncover a highly expressive wine style, capable of huge variety and differentiation, which we express to its fullest extent across our range. Grown in wind-cooled river valleys set it free with the crack of the screwcap and it leaps from the glass, chilled and ready to refresh with lush aromatics of tropical fruits and dazzling citrus notes.
