Enjoy some of New Zealand’s finest, award winning, and flavourful wines while at the lookout point where you can relish in a cliff top view looking out over the Marlborough Sounds, the Cook Straight, and even The North Island on a clear day. 

Start your day with a complimentary wine tasting like no other, where you will experience a sensory adventure as you are presented with fragrances that compliment the beautiful wine. 

The vineyard was once a rugged, rolling stretch of pastoral land that was thought to be too wild, windswept and undulating for growing grapes but has now blossomed into one of the world's most sustainable wineries. The Seaview Vineyard offers something for everyone on their award-winning, self guided tour along The White Road. The 8km road begins at the cellar door and winds through the vineyard, up towards the amazing Lookout point where you can enjoy that stunning coastal view and grab some amazing photos. 

The White Road offers something for everyone, especially families as there are plenty of sheltered picnic areas where you can stop and enjoy the sights. Animal enthusiasts can encounter many of the Vineyards local residents by exploring the restored biodiverse wetlands, the large flock of Merino sheep or if you’re lucky you can spot the small flock of adorable babydoll sheep, which the vineyard uses as lawnmowers. Finally a magical stroll down butterfly gully where you can settle down for a complimentary cheese platter picnic as you watch the monarch butterflies flutter around you, sipping on a complimentary glass of award winning sauvignon blanc.
