Overview

Tucked away just off the state highway, you’ll find our winery and cellar door. It’s the perfect place to take some time out, enjoy some wine, and take in the view across the plains. “You will feel at home at the spacious cellar door. There is an unpretentious, helpful and enjoyable approach to wine tasting here. These seriously made wines show clarity, purity and detail." Cuisine Magazine

We really enjoyed our time at Brightwater Vineyards. We had a wine tasting on the deck looking over the vineyard and nibbled on some delicious cheeses. It was one of the highlights of our trip to Nelson!
