Jackson Estate embodies the very best of Marlborough New Zealand, the essence of Sauvignon Blanc. Jackson Estate is a special place, a testament to the vision and determination of the Stichbury & Jackson families who have farmed the land on the Wairau River plain at Jacksons Road for more than 160 years. Since planting our pioneering vineyards, established three decades ago, time, tide and fortune have smiled on Jackson Estate, and the unparalleled affinity between Marlborough and fine wine has been spectacularly realised. Jackson Estate believes in a few very simple principles. The best modern winemaking technology; a respect for vineyard sites; an unerring pursuit of varietal integrity; and – through this – a strong, identifiable and much-admired regional typicity.
