Owner description: Visit us...Our winery and cellar door is nestled in 17 hectares of vineyards and beautifully manicured gardens, with spectacular views of the Richmond Ranges. We are open everyday for complimentary wine tastings.Turn down Conders Bend Road from State Highway 6 between the Wairau River Bridge and Renwick to taste Framingham wines at their source. Just 10 minutes’ drive from Blenheim on the main road to Nelson, we’re open everyday from 10.30am until 4.30pm. Relax in the deco-style wooden panelled tasting room, or enjoy the sunshine and roses in our sheltered courtyard. Let us give you an insight into how our wines are crafted to make the most of the Wairau Valley climate as you savour our diverse range. Wander the vineyard or venture downstairs to explore the cellar, where we keep vintages past and present.

We sampled the large range on offer from their cellar door and in particular were taken by the different Rieslings in their range. From the very dry, crisp style - best drunk with food such as a lemon infused ceviche of (raw) fish, an “off-dry” Riesling with a hint of sweetness, perfect with any cooked seafood dish, to a medium sweet “classic” style typical of many European Rieslings and an excellent match for spicy Asian dishes or Thai curries. Four very different tasting wines from the one variety of grape. Their wooded chardonnay is also very good and is an easy drinking style. They also offer a Montepulciano D’abruzzo red which compares with similar wines from the Tuscan region of Italy from where it hails. I suggest that finally you sample their Gewurztraminer Riesling which is a honey and marmalade flavoured sticky wine that will have your taste buds dancing. If you are seeking to taste a wide range of wines and also to discover the differences that can occur with the same grape varietal, picked and processed at different times and with different methods, then Framingham is well worth a visit.

This was the first stop on our wine tour this year. The wines would definitely appeal to white wine drinkers and yes, I did taste some even though my preference is for full-bodied reds. Worth a visit.

One sunny Friday afternoon we arrived at the Cellar Door of Framingham. The woman in te CD was knowledgable, very friendly and interesting. We talked alot about the wine, but also talked about life, work and sport interest. We met Tom Trolove the GM/Marketing Manager and the Chief winemaker. We were told to look at the Wine Cellar underneath, which was well worth it! A highly recommended place to visit if you are ever in Marlborough - the Aromatics Rock! Thanks for our great experience.
