The striking Nautilus shell - its shape expressing natural beauty and mathematical perfection - is our inspiration to create a collection of expressive, textural, precisely crafted wines.

The early days of Marlborough winegrowing

We are a small, family-owned winery based in the stunningly beautiful Marlborough region of New Zealand. We began making Nautilus wines in 1985 and aim to craft delicious, food-friendly wines from the clean, cool and diverse valleys of Marlborough.

Our energetic and innovative viticultural and winemaking team takes the approach of blending several different fruit parcels to achieve layers of complexity in the wines, focusing on their texture and mouth-feel. Our state-of-the-art but small-scale winemaking facilities give them the tools to achieve this.

Whilst Nautilus wines can easily be enjoyed on their own, we believe they are even better when paired with delicious food and the philosophy of creating food-friendly wines is paramount for winemaker Clive Jones.
