"We are passionate people. We have extended ourselves at times—physically, emotionally, financially. But the hard work and dedication has been worth it.

A visit to Jarvis Estate is an extraordinary journey, like no other, into the world of exceptional winemaking. Visitors to the country’s first winery built entirely underground are offered an intimate glimpse into the meticulous steps that go into producing our lush Chardonnays, rich Cabernet Sauvignons and velvety Merlots, among others. The tour concludes with an intimate, seated experience.
