At Sileni Estates, we are translators of the land, allowing our vineyards to express their unique story. We balance the elements of terroir – sun, earth, and water – to produce exceptional wines. Our winemaking philosophy is rooted in minimal intervention, allowing the bountiful flavours of New Zealand to be expressed authentically.
With each vintage, we retell the story of our land, each time with its own unique nuances. Our portfolio includes a Merlot dominant Bordeaux blend, Rhone-style Syrah, and Semillon, which speak to the warmer plains at sea level in Hawke’s Bay. Meanwhile, our Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and ripe-style Sauvignon Blanc reflect our cooler, higher-altitude foothill vineyards and coastal sites. And, of course, there’s no mistaking our world-renowned Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
Our dedication to producing exceptional wines has earned us numerous national and international awards, a testament to the quality and authenticity of our wines.
We invite you to visit us and taste for yourself. Located in the heart of Hawke’s Bay, our cellar door offers a stunning setting where you can make the most of the gorgeous Hawke’s Bay sunshine. Relax on our sheltered terrace or sit beside the vines with a glass of Sileni wine and enjoy a locally sourced platter.
