沃拉斯頓釀酒有限公司成立于2006年，是新西蘭最成熟的釀酒廠之一。 釀酒廠建于山上，是幢18米高的四層建筑， 屋頂覆蓋著草皮。二至四層用于釀酒，底層是用于木桶養酒，裝瓶，以及葡萄酒圖書館。 地窖是雙層大廳，用作釀酒車間和開音樂會和用餐的功能廳。
參觀釀酒廠是次美妙的經歷。入口處矗立著馬特. 茲梅的雕塑 “瑪哈那的禪座”， 一路走去，豐富，珍貴的收藏令人目不暇接。沃拉斯頓的畫廊陳列著許多國內外藝術家的當代的，發人深思的， 振奮人心的作品。
Woollaston 莊園能生產出最好的葡萄酒同時也成為我們當地一道美麗的風景線。Woollaston 莊園 于2000年成立，在Philip、 Chan Woollaston與Glenn、Renée Schaeffer相遇并發現對于酒的釀造工藝及品質有著相同的品位。同時對于藝術文化以及Nelson的景色有著相同的熱愛。所以他們夢想去發展葡萄酒事業，不僅在于產出高品質的酒，更在于當地的自然美景與富有創造力的熱情。
One of New Zealand's most sophisticated winery developments, Woollaston Estates was officially opened in 2006. The 18-metre high, four-level winery is built into the hillside and blends into the environment with its tussock covered roof. The top three levels are dedicated to winemaking while the bottom level contains wine aging in barrels, the bottling line, wine library and The Cellars – a large hall which doubles as a winery working area and as a function room for concerts and dinners.
The winery complex is a beautiful place to visit, and is home to a growing and significant collection of art heralded by the bold Yantra for Mahana sculpture by Marté Szirmay at the gateway. The Gallery at Woollaston hosts a changing programme of contemporary, evocative and stimulating exhibitions by national and international artists.
The Woollaston Estates vision is to produce the best wine nature will allow and at the same time enhance the natural beauty of our surroundings.
Woollaston Estates was formed in 2000 when Philip and Chan Woollaston met Glenn and Renée Schaeffer and discovered they shared a vision of creating an estate where quality wines would be crafted. They also share a love of art, literature and the Nelson landscape, so their dream was to develop a winery that was not only highly functional, but was also sensitive to the natural aesthetic of the area and reflected their creative passion.
It is often said that great wine is made in the vineyard - all our grapes are estate-grown, enabling us to control quality from the vineyard to the bottle. Each of our vineyard sites was chosen for its unique character, the flavours that terroir and careful, hands-on viticulture give the fruit are subtly enhanced by the gentle handling of our gravity-fed winery.
