Our Seaview Vineyard is located in the Awatere Valley, Marlborough at the north-eastern tip of New Zealand's South Island. Stretching from the foothills of the Kaikoura Ranges to undulating downs overlooking Cook Strait, Seaview Vineyard is the single largest privately owned vineyard in the New Zealand. The Yealands Estate Winery was created to operate sustainably at every level. Opened August 2008, the winery was built under the draft Green Building Code and was the first winery in the world to be accredited CarboNZero certified organisation from inception. Aesthetically, the building is designed to blend into the landscape with no disruptive contours. Rainfall from the roof of the winery is collected in swale drains on either side of the building, and either recycled or piped out to our wetlands. Functionally it operates as possibly one of the most innovative, sustainable wineries anywhere in the world.
