The flagship Glengarry store in Wellington is located in Thorndon at 53 Hutt Rd. It contains a great space for wine tastings, purpose-built to host large events for up to 60 people. The beer fridge boasts an extensive selection of craft beers. As you enter, you’ll find a range of Growler taps, so bring your own growler on in, or just purchase one instore, and you'll be all set to enjoy fresh craft beer on tap. There is, too, a decent-sized fine wine cellar stocked it with the largest range of premium fine wines from around the world that Wellington has ever seen. And as for the shelf space, it's massive, with ample room to accommodate our full range of premium wines and spirits. The friendly and knowledgeable team is headed up by Phil and Meredith, and they'll happily attend to all your vinous needs.




In 2001 Kiwi winemakers decided to throw back the covers and show the world why their Pinot Noir was special. It was the birth of an event which has been lauded for its style and excellence. 16 years on and the latest rendition takes place at the beginning of February 2017. Pinot Noir NZ is internationally relevant and cutting edge, attracting world renowned wine commentators and winemakers.
At the forefront of wine in New Zealand, Glengarry is of course Pinot Noir 2017's Retail Partner. Several of our team are lucky enough to be amongst the delegates for Pinot Noir 2017, including Liz.
Post the event Liz will put together her pick of wines from Pinot Noir 2017 to present at our first Pinot Noir Club for the year in Wellington.
Riedel are the glassware partner for Pinot Noir 2017, continuing the theme, you’ll be tasting tonight in a Riedel glass, none other than the Heart to Heart Pinot Noir glass designed for New Zealand Pinot Noir. What an excellent tasting to start the year with.

At the heart of that vineyard lies a small ungrafted parcel that makes the legendary 'Nacional', the most famous and desired Port in the world. Come along and find out why this house and its wines are so special.
