Posted by [email protected] on January 23, 2018

It’s that time of year again! Just three weeks until Valentine’s Day, so we wanted to remind you how easy it is to let us play Cupid and spoil your No.1 love with bubbles this year.

  • If you’re in the throes of a new romance, why not gift a bottle of No. 1 Assemblé? Just like your love it’s fresh and inviting with sophisticated characters and intense flavours.
  • For those of you who like to celebrate love with a classic wine, choose No. 1 Cuvée. One of New Zealand's most highly regarded Méthode Traditionelle wines. You can also gift twice as much love this year with a beautifully packaged “Two of One” gift box.
  • For your vintage love, choose a vintage Méthode Traditionelle. Cuvée Virginie is blended from 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir. This wine was also a recent Gold Medal winner at the Romeo Bragato Wine Awards.
  • And for the man in your life, we’d recommend No.1 Reserve, as individual as the person you are gifting it to, each bottle is individually hand numbered and hand labelled.

Win Tickets for Marlborough Wine & Food Festival

Posted by [email protected] on January 09, 2018

New Zealand’s best and longest-running wine and food festival, The Marlborough Wine & Food Festival is just a few short weeks away.

We’re proud of our longstanding history with this iconic Marlborough event, in fact, we were involved in the very first Marlborough Wine & Food Festival in the 1980s, at the request of Ernie Hunter.

Since then we have continued to put the fizz into the festival, with regular attendance and themed stands from Putting on the Ritz to a stand that marked the bicentennial of the French Revolution, guillotine and all!

The Marlborough Wine & Food Festival is as much part of a Marlborough summer, as ripening vines, dry sunny days, evening strolls and dining outside with close friends and family.

These days, the organisation of the No.1 Family Estate stand has been handed over to a new generation, with Remy and Virginie, taking over the reins. And this year we’ll have a double stand at the event where you’ll be able to enjoy our award-winning wines.

  • No. 1 Assemblé
  • No. 1 Cuvée
  • Cuvée Virginie
  • No. 1 Reserve


To celebrate this year’s festival, we’re giving away a pair of general admission tickets to one lucky winner. You can enter the competition HERE.
