Walnut Block

Founded in 1996 by the Sowman brothers, Clyde and Nigel, Walnut Block is a distinguished winery nestled in the heart of New Zealand's esteemed Marlborough wine region. Their journey began with the planting of their very first vineyard, strategically located in the Wairau Valley, renowned for its exceptional terroir and favourable grape-growing climate. Nearly a decade later, in 2005, the Sowman brothers officially established Walnut Block Winery, a family endeavour built upon their shared love for viticulture and winemaking. The name "Walnut Block" pays homage to the magnificent walnut tree that stands as a proud sentinel in the centre of their vineyard, serving as a symbol of their commitment to both nature and tradition. Their portfolio includes exceptional Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, and a range of other varietals that capture the essence of New Zealand's terroir.
