Nautilus Winery is unquestionably one of the most highly regarded estates in the Marlborough region of the south island of New Zealand. Robert Hill-Smith, owner of Yalumba Winery (and Negociants USA agency), is the owner of Nautilus.
Specializing in Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, Nautilus makes other notable wines, like Pinot Gris and sparkling wine, that are more difficult to sell in our markets. We concentrate on selling Sauvignon Blanc in line with the great interest American consumers have with this varietal. Nautilus, however, stands out in a sea of Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc as it has better mouthful and much, much more complexity than the typical grapefruit notes of the giant producers located nearby.
Nautilus Winery is part of the Negociants USA portfolio of Australia and New Zealand wines.
