With an absolute commitment to sustainable wine production, Yealands Estate brings together winemaker Tamra Washington and winery owner and founder, Peter Yealands, whose vineyard development skills and ‘green’ wine business vision lead the industry in sustainable premium wine production.

Few could grasp the breadth of Peter Yealands' vision when he took on the challenge of creating terraced vineyards amongst these rolling foothills in the late 90s, eventually realising Yealands Seaview Vineyard. The majority of the vineyard is planted with New Zealand’s world renowned Sauvignon Blanc vines.
