About Nockie's Palette and Stoneridge Cellar Door
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 award-winning 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. From July 6th, we open from 11am-4pm every Monday - Thursday, and Friday - Sunday 11am-5pm. We are open by appointment outside these hours with at least 24hrs notice.

Visited in June 2021 as part of the hop on/hop off bus tour. We organized the visit as a separate stop from the tour, given that the cellar door was technically closed that day - they went above and beyond in accommodating us! Loved the Pinot noir and baked Camembert. Can not believe I ate an entire wheel of cheese...! I’m going to queenstown again in June and can’t wait to revisit the place. The grounds are equally beautiful so hopefully I’ll have more time to wander!

We visited Nockie's Palette as part of the Hop-On, Hop-Off wine tour and we were very impressed not only with the location but with the wine offerings and particularly the cheeseboard. In fact, we were so impressed, we went back 3 days later for more wine and another cheeseboard. The staff on both occasions were superb to deal with, Eliza was there both times we visited, and her knowledge not only of the offerings at Nockie's Palette but also the surrounding areas was great. I highly recommend a visit to Nockie's Palette, and Eliza, your customer service really is outstanding, keep up the great work!

Visited the very beautiful Nockie's Palette with 2 friends for a Sip & Paint experience. We had no idea what to expect, and were delighted to be warmly greeted by Molly, who had arranged our table by the window, complete with painting aprons, easels & beautiful quality acrylic paint jars ready to go. It was freestyle, so for a complete novice like myself, I painted a daffodil that I'd recently photographed. We ordered the hot rosemary & garlic camembert (OMG!!) to accompany our wine and painting. It was a wonderful outing, in gorgeous surroundings. Highly recommend this for something different to do with friends. Special thanks Molly for her friendly help in organising our visit.
