About
Nockie’s Palette - where art meets wine. Nockie’s Palette Wines was created with a vision to combine Michael Nock’s love of wine with his passion for art. Nockie’s Palette believes it is the artist or artisan who contributes the most value in the production of something truly great. Thus, we seek out winemakers that are considered among the world’s best in a range of different grape varieties. Just as the artist has a palette of paints and colours, Nockie’s Palette offers a palette of handcrafted wines showcasing unique hues, textures, flavours and terroir. Nockie’s Palette wines exhibit the best terroirs in the Australiasian region, from Central Otago Pinot Noir to Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay and Barossa Valley Shiraz. Besides wine tasting, Nockie’s Palette offers inspirational activities such as wine & paint. Cellar Door closed dates in 2023: 3 Apr, 7 Apr, 9 Apr, 25 Apr, 5 Jun and 25 & 26 Dec. Please book for your tasting on all other days in advance.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The most beautiful winery I have ever been to. Such friendly staff, really nice wine, and the perfect place to spend the afternoon doing a sip & paint! Would definitely recommend :)

We went to Nockies Palette as part of the Hop On Hop Off wine tour. Nockies was a lovely place to stop off, such a picturesque location and lovely service. Walker was incredibly knowledgable, patient and kind. Beatrice was lovely too. Thank you for a great experience - we ended up staying for two hours!

We had an excellence experience here. Simon introduced us to many wines during our tasting, and educated us on many aspects of them. He was friendly, professional, and very knowledgeable.

Given my knowledge of wines is limited, it was really nice to have someone who could take my descriptions of what I like and recommend what I should try. The atmosphere was also wonderful. Very cozy and comfortable.

Many other wine tasting trips I have been on have felt corporate and touristy. This one felt like we were at someone's home, who just happens to own a vineyard! :)

Very much recommended for those in the Queenstown area!

Garret gave us excellent service, very knowledgeable and entertaining. Would happily take friends and family back to Nockie’s thanks to this excellent service.

I’m no expert in wine, but it was interesting to learn about the different wines from around different wineries throughout the regions of NZ.

This cellar door is situated in a lovely pretty setting with beautiful gardens.

We had a personal wine session, it was just our host Stella and the two of us. There were other tastings happening at the same time and some artists crafting paintings, but the whole place had an air of calm and relaxation. Stella had a fantastic knowledge of the wines, the artistry behind the labels and was very friendly. The tasting was tailored to our preferences and the wines were great. Once the session concluded we took advantage of the wonderful setting to have a glass of our favourite wine sitting in the garden.

We travelled here by public bus from Queenstown which proved very easy (and cheap with the bus Bee Card) and enabled us both to sample the wines as we didn't have the hassle of driving and observing the drink-drive rules. The bus stop is a few minutes walk away and is clearly marked.

The walk up from the road passes some lovely vines but also a big pile of rubbish/rubble - ignore this first impression as it does get much better!

Garrett definitely made this visit one to remember. He was the perfect host and full of knowledge. My mum and I instantly loved him. Oh and the wine, I recommend the Pinot gris! The views here are stunning! Definitely worth the visit

We went as part of a hen's do and had the wonderful Eliza as our host, she was amazing and explained each wine and it's background as well as showing us some of the lovely artwork behind the wine labels. Definitely recommend coming here and thanks again to Eliza for your help and expertise.

Garrett was a wealth of knowledge, we enjoyed a wine on the terrace deck over looking the gardens. What a serene place. Wonderful little Chapel, ideal for weddings and photos in the gardens after, with the mountains all around.
