Falcon flying over Lake Chalice Vineyards at Sunset

Lake Chalice was established in 1989 by two friends who shared a vision of producing internationally recognised wines from the heart of New Zealand's Marlborough wine region. Today, the name Lake Chalice represents multi-award winning wines built upon a foundation of more than 25 years of winemaking pedigree.

New Zealand’s native falcon, the ‘Kārearea’, is proudly displayed on every bottle of Lake Chalice wine. Kārearea favour the remote mountains and foothills of the upper Awatere and Wairau valleys and these valleys are home to Lake Chalice’s three unique vineyard sites. Each vineyard has a diverse microclimate, biodiversity and terroir which are seamlessly translated into multi award winning wines by talented winemaker Chloe Gabrielsen. Taking a boutique approach, she handcrafts parcels of fruit from single vineyards into elegant, aromatic, fruit driven wines and has garnered a global reputation of outstanding quality.

Behind the scenes Lake Chalice Wines is managed by the Ibbotson family, owners of Saint Clair Vineyards and one of Marlborough’s founding names in viticulture, renowned for a down to earth wine philosophy. Combined with decades old vineyards and an experienced viticultural team, Lake Chalice Wines delivers outstanding expressions of authentic Marlborough wines.
