Lake Chalice Wines is one of the few remaining privately and locally owned wine companies in New Zealand. Proudly owned by the Ibbotson family and located in the country’s premier wine-growing region, Marlborough, the winery prides itself in producing exceptional quality from grape to glass.

We don’t want to bore you with winemaking hoity-toity. Instead, we choose a more grounded approach to our grape growing and winemaking. To us, our wine is the liquid form of what rings are to a tree’s trunk. They are the product of our teams kaitiakitanga, our guardianship and connection to the land and the elements. They are a moment in time, captured in a bottle.

Our wines are about the understanding of the land and each vineyard’s nuances, they are our response to the weather, to the elements, to each vine and individual pockets of fruit. Our challenge is to bring out the best in every variety and to celebrate what each season and harvest provides.

Our goal simply is to create wines that everyone can enjoy, for each drop to tell its own story and its journey. We can’t promise that you can travel through time or stand amongst the valley vineyards. But we know you can enjoy the end of the journey by opening one of our wines.
