The paint is finally dry on our new Tasting Hut and we are open again for wine tastings by appointment! Don't hesitate to get in touch with Lou to arrange for a tasting, she will be happy to present you our current releases, including our new Pinot Noir Rosé 2016 as well as our Estate Pinot Noir 2015, which were only introduced to the public in September 2016.
This fly over video of Kina Beach Vineyard filmed by a drone is simply spectacular. Thank you Mirko Bocek for sharing it with us, it was great having you stay with us at Stan's Cottage over Christmas.

The 2016 Nelson Wine New Release Tasting is approaching fast and we are very excited to not only showcase our new releases this year, but to also introduce two Kina Beach Vineyard first time releases to the wider public. Come by and try our Pinot Noir Rosé 2016 and our Pinot Noir Estate 2015. Alex is very keen to hear what you think of our new kids on the block and how they hold up against the older boys and girls in the Kina Beach Vineyard wine range.
We have been keeping busy at Kina Beach Vineyard over winter and just in time for summer, Stan's Cottage is ready to welcome guests that are dreaming of spending a few days and nights in the heart of a vineyard. The cottage was originally built for the charming Stan as his retirement cottage. Choosing to keep the name in his memory it has been lovingly renovated and refurnished. The view from Stan's Cottage over rows of Pinot Noir, the Moutere Inlet with its ever changing tides and Mount Arthur and the surrounding ranges in the distance is simply incredible and provides the perfect setting for a romantic getaway.
Bob Campell has recently reviewed our Kina Beach Reserve Chardonnay 2013 and has given it 92 points. The fact that our flagship wine is continuosly awarded gold and silver medals fills us with joy but also underlines the success of our viticultural practice. Great wines do start in the vineyard. Kudos to our faithful soldiers in rows 74 to 131 and of course great compliments to our viticultural team.
