Murdoch James Estate

Murdoch James Estate is an exquisite family owned and operated, boutique vineyard in wine-loving Martinborough.

The established vineyard was the dream of Jill & Roger Fraser who planted their first Pinot Noir and Syrah cuttings by  hand in the 1980’s.  They are now seeing through their vision of tending grapes and crafting wines to share with wine lovers around the world.  Today, son Carl Fraser is Winemaker, and the people at Murdoch James Estate are committed to producing smooth-textured wines that build on the palate.  murdoch-james-estate-gal2

With its popular Grape To Glass Wine Tour, the  Cellar Door at Murdoch James Estate is considered one of the best Martinborough experiences.

Also on the estate is the beautiful Bloom Restaurant overlooking the vineyard with seasonal menus focusing on fresh local produce and their fine wines.

In summer, relax and stretch out in the sun on the deck to enjoy your vineyard lunch. In winter, snuggle up by the fire and enjoy a glass of Pinot Noir with friends. Whatever the weather, we have it covered.

Murdoch James Estate’s  hosted Grape To Glass wine tour not only lets you taste fine wine but also informs and entertains you with great stories about winemaking.

Make a it a complete experience and stay at The Winemakers Cottage situated in the vineyard.
