The natural balance and mathematical spiral of the Nautilus shell has inspired us to create expressive, textural, precisely crafted wines at Nautilus Estate since 1985, the early days of Marlborough winegrowing.
Back in those days there were around 80 wineries in NZ. Today there are over 700. Yet we remain small, under the same family ownership, and committed to making wines 100% from the stunning Marlborough region.
Winemaker Clive Jones joined Nautilus in 1998 and since then, the estate has been rewarded by numerous accolades and trophies over the years as well as positions for Clive on both Marlborough Winegrowers and the national NZ Winegrowers boards. But while we always appreciate recognition from our peers, it is belief in the marriage of fine wine with food that inspires each new vintage.
