Overview

As pioneers of the original Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, our expertise has allowed our winemakers to select and harvest grapes earlier than usual to craft full-flavoured wine that is naturally lighter in alcohol.

“Featuring an abundance of ripe grapefruit and passionfruit aromas that have made Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc world famous, this wine is made naturally and contains only 9% alcohol - making it a wonderful choice for all occasions.” Patrick Materman, Chief Winemaker

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

While we craft wines from vineyards throughout New Zealand, Brancott Estate™ wines (formerly known as 'Montana' wines) are named in honour of our Marlborough roots - taking their name from our cherished Brancott Vineyard. With its special combination of soil, sun and climate, this is where we first planted our most famous varietal; Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Although our name has changed, you can be assured that the distinctive and uniquely New Zealand wine in the bottle will remain the same - as will the location of our inspirational home where it all began.

In 1973, Brancott Vineyard was the site of our first Sauvignon Blanc plantings in Marlborough – a decision that went against the popular opinion of the time that suggested the South Island was too cold to grow wine grapes. We soon proved this wasn’t the case with our very first vintage of the varietal winning an award.

The release of the first Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc vintage in 1979 was the beginning of a phenomenon which, not only placed New Zealand firmly on the international wine map, but has since become a shining example of the quality of wine that can be produced from this land.

Today, Brancott Vineyard continues to be a source of inspiration for our winemakers, not only proving that anything is possible, but that our belief in this land and our knowledge to obtain the best from it can result in award-winning wines enjoyed the world over.
