"Saint Clair now makes the country’s and perhaps the world’s best Sauvignon Blanc. Saint Clair has won more top awards for Sauvignon Blanc in recent years than any of the three or four hundred other local producers. Although Sauvignon Blanc is clearly Saint Clair’s signature wine it has also earned trophies for Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinot Noir, and Riesling over the same period."

Saint Clair’s 'state of the art' winery is situated equal distance between Saint Clair's Awatere Valley Vineyard and Wairau Valley Vineyards.

Architect Neal Charles Jones and Saint Clair's Chief Winemaker, Matt Thomson, combined their extensive experience to design Saint Clair Estate's state of the art winery.

Built for production from the 2006 harvest, the winery is capable of crushing 400 tonnes of fruit per day. It features state of the art equipment including high-tec refrigeration control and monitoring software to further enhance the quality of Saint Clair award-winning wines.

The Riverland's Estate location was chosen as an ideal position for the new winery due to its central location and proximity to Saint Clair's main vineyards. The site has adjoining facilities for bottling, storage and dispatch.

The winery boasts a large temperature controlled barrel hall for storage of up to 850 oak barriques.

The Saint Clair Family Estate winery is extremely functional and continues to be developed to meet the specific needs for Saint Clair's quality wine production.
