Armit Wines recommends
Our team has the expertise to take you on a journey through our award-winning wine list that has, in recent years, burgeoned by championing wineries that continue to set the pace in an increasingly open field in the world of fine wine. This growing catalogue has seen us expand across all price brackets with an unmoving dedication to quality. Below, we have handpicked some of our home favourites. We think these wines really demonstrate the excellent value for money across Armit Wines range.
Seresin - Michael Seresin's passion for wine was ignited after exploring the wines that Italy has to offer during his visits to his second home in the Tuscan hills. After initially toying with the idea of establishing a winery in Italy during the early 1990s, his attention was soon diverted back to his homeland of New Zealand, having enjoyed the latest wines from Marlborough after a trip to the stunning Marlborough Sounds. The first vines of Seresin Estate were planted in the Wairau Valley in the early 1990s, the vineyard that would later become Seresin's Home vineyard. The maiden vintage in 1996 was a great success, and the vineyard holding was soon expanded with the purchase of Tatou vineyard in 2000, followed by the clay-rich Raupo Creek vineyard in Omaka Valley.
