About
Allan Scott is one of the true pioneers and a name synonymous with New Zealand’s acclaimed Marlborough region, having been involved with the planting of the region’s first vineyard in 1973. In June 2011 he was awarded with a Queens Birthday honour for services to the New Zealand wine industry. Allan along with wife Catherine founded the Allan Scott Family Winemakers label in 1990 and quickly became a household brand name in the highly competitive wine industry. Today Allan, Catherine and entire family of Victoria, Joshua and Sara head up the production marketing and management of the company with a highly skilled operational team. The family produces a range of aromatic wines especially well suited to the region’s gravelly soils and sunny climate; Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer while an exceptional Methode Traditionelle made with the traditional techniques and using only Pinot Noir and Chardonnay is also produced.

Best stop on the wine tour
Apr 2021
This was our third winery to visit and by far the best. Our sommelier was friendly, informative and so knowledgeable. We had mussels and they were divine.
Loved the ability to choose our own wines and at our own pace. First time using the wine-dispensing machines - brilliant!
Took a box home to savour!

Excellent
Mar 2021
We arrived on an extremely busy Easter Sunday lunch time and managed to get a table in the sun. The food excellent as always, but must comment on the equally excellent staff. They were all very pleasant and friendly even though they were under pressure most of the time because the number of tables were continuously occupied. Service was timely and always with a smile. Particular mention must go to Sarah who seemed to be everywhere and doing a multitude of tasks, remaining good natured and friendly. We will visit again next time we visit Marlborough from North Canterbury

Not ideal
Feb 2021
Whilst the location is lovely and the property looks great the actual wine tasting experience is both cold and impersonal. This may be us as we love to interact with people on site and learen some of the history and wine being "poured" by a machine just was not our thing.....very disappointed!

Lunch at a beautiful place
Jan 2021 • Friends
We arrived on a hot sunny day to be pleasantly surprised by a beautiful setting. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Found a lovely table in the shade and had a lovely lunch with a couple of excellent vino's.
Really enjoyed our visit and would recommend Allan Scott's winery.

Not worth a visit!
Jan 2021
Very abrupt reception which I considered poor service - long wait time
Food very average = I’d give it 3/10
Wait staff scruffy - wont be going to Allen Scott Bristo again
Seems a pity as its truely a beautiful venue but feel our meal was of a very low standard and being based at the Allen Scott winery should be of a standard Marlborough should be proud of.

Superb setting
Nov 2020
Great service. Very friendly staff. On arrival we tried the automated wine machines imported from Italy that gave us a choice of 24 wines, $1 taste, larger portions $3.50 or $4.50. A fantastic idea. Ordered lunch and dining is now on a casual basis, sit wherever you like, no bookings. Fabulous gardens. We sat outside. The chicken salad is highly recommended, it is in a tortilla basket. Fish tacos were also VG.

beautiful setting, friendly attentive staff. The food was super yummy, our group had the steak sandwich, baked potato and chicken bugger, great favours. WE had the bubbles to go with and it was very enjoyed. Sat by the fire which was cool, The garden were well set out and heaps of room. A giant size chess set as well.

A wind tasting.....
Sep 2020 • Couples
We stopped late in the day for a wine tasting and were introduced to automated sampling. The best and most cost effective way to sample 20 plus wines. Our host was great and the wine was pretty good as well. Enjoy......

Great work by the Scott family
Sep 2020
We visited two days after the re opening, on Father's day, so naturally it was a little busy. Ordered our food and chatted to each other whilst we waited. After a little while Sara came to our table and invited us to meet Josh (the winemaker) in the wine tasting area because our food was still about ten minutes away. Great initiative on her part.

Josh is extremely knowledgeable about the different wines the company produces and generously gave us tastings of a selection.

This was a great way to transform the experience into something positive and very memorable.

Food was good too! A delightful, family run operation.
