The mathematically perfect spiral of the Nautilus shell has been admired since ancient Greek times…and in more recent times by lovers of Champagne quality fizz since 1989.
Don’t take our word for it. This Marlborough Methode Traditionelle (made in the same way as Champagne) took out the Trophy for Champion Sparkling at the NZ Wine of the Year Awards in 2018 (formerly known as the Air NZ Wine Awards) and it’s what Michael Cooper rates as 5 Stars and calls “among the finest in the country“.
First launched in 1985 as a premium, family owned NZ winery. These days Nautilus are part of a bigger (and very prestigious) family – The Family of Twelve.
Twelve of NZ’s most iconic, successful wineries that share information, ideas and even the odd secret or two. The top brass of NZ wineries sit round this table – Villa Maria, Kumeu River, Millton, Craggy Range, Ata Rangi, Palliser Estate, Neudorf, Lawsons, Fromm, Pegasus Bay, Felton Road and Nautilus.
