There is something very European about the courtyard that surrounds Framingham’s cellar door. From the moment you walk through the gates, your senses are placed on alert, particularly in the summer months. With lush green grass, stoneworks, sweeping trees and dozens of roses, it is an intoxicating environment. Standing sedately at the end of the courtyard is the two-storey office and cellar door.
Things To Know
Framingham is home to some of Marlborough’s oldest riesling vines and has become renowned internationally for its rieslings. With grapes drawn from the 17 hectares of vineyard surrounding the cellar door, Framingham also produces sauvignon blanc, pinot gris, gewurztraminer, pinot noir and even a montepulciano.
Riesling is obviously the must-try here – the off-dry Classic Riesling is an excellent example of the variety, while the F Series Old Vine Riesling has wonderful complexity.
