Twelve Trees

Named after the walnut trees that lined the entrance to the winery, Twelve Trees Restaurant lunch is a must for visitors and locals alike.

Open Daily 9am to 4:30pm

The great food and relaxing atmosphere, whether in the sheltered courtyard or inside by the fire, provide a warm welcome.

Menus change seasonally to reflect Head Chef Matt Gibson’s simple food philosophy “fresh & local”. However, a couple of signature dishes, including the Seafood Chowder which has become a local favourite, remain on the menu year round. Come in and try it with the delicious Wallops Chardonnay!

While visiting, explore the immaculate gardens with fountains and giant chess, taste Allan Scott’s famous wines in the cellar door shop, and browse through the unique gifts.

Allan Scott Family Winemakers lies in the heart of Marlborough’s famed “golden mile” on Jacksons Road, between Rapaura and Old Renwick Roads. We are 8 km from Blenheim and 5 km from Renwick, surrounded by vineyards.

We opened our Cellar Door and Cafe in September 2011. Converted from an earlier home of Tom and Fiona’s, it still has that welcoming warm feel.

Based around seasonally inspired cooking and our range of organically grown wines, the Cellar Door and Cafe is a great showcase for the honest, down-to-earth produce that New Zealand’s South Island is justifiably famous for.

A familial air surrounds you. First time visitors at our vineyard cafe often describe a feeling they can’t put their finger on, like they are coming home. Something to do with the infectious laughter bubbling from the kitchen and the mostly organic food cooked with love and attention.

Lots of locals, of course, do come back. They’re part of the family too.

Contact Details & Opening Hours

We are open from 10.00am to 4.30pm with lunch available from 11.30am to 3.00pm seven days a week. We are closed all statutory holidays.

Waterfall Bay Dinner Series

In 2015, Seresin Estate will be hosting Chef Nic Poelaert at their occasional restaurant, nestled amongst the native bush overlooking Waterfall Bay in the Marlborough Sounds. Nic (of Brooks in Melbourne) will be cooking a five course menu that not only complements the Estate’s wines, but also an array of local ingredients.

Guests will travel to and from the Waterfall Bay property by boat, sailing through the inimitable Marlborough Sounds, taking in the beautiful and peaceful views and eventually mooring in the solitude and pristine environment of the restaurant.

Forming an integral part of New Zealand’s culinary calendar since their inauguration in 1999, the Waterfall Bay lunches and dinners make use of biodynamically-produced salads, fruit, vegetables, honey and oils from the Estate, as well as – of course – the Seresin wines themselves.
