沃拉斯顿酿酒有限公司成立于2006年，是新西兰最成熟的酿酒厂之一。 酿酒厂建于山上，是幢18米高的四层建筑， 屋顶覆盖着草皮。二至四层用于酿酒，底层是用于木桶养酒，装瓶，以及葡萄酒图书馆。 地窖是双层大厅，用作酿酒车间和开音乐会和用餐的功能厅。
参观酿酒厂是次美妙的经历。入口处矗立着马特. 兹梅的雕塑 “玛哈那的禅座”， 一路走去，丰富，珍贵的收藏令人目不暇接。沃拉斯顿的画廊陈列着许多国内外艺术家的当代的，发人深思的， 振奋人心的作品。
Woollaston 庄园能生产出最好的葡萄酒同时也成为我们当地一道美丽的风景线。Woollaston 庄园 于2000年成立，在Philip、 Chan Woollaston与Glenn、Renée Schaeffer相遇并发现对于酒的酿造工艺及品质有着相同的品位。同时对于艺术文化以及Nelson的景色有着相同的热爱。所以他们梦想去发展葡萄酒事业，不仅在于产出高品质的酒，更在于当地的自然美景与富有创造力的热情。
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.
