What Our Customers Say About Us -
“Cottier make a great classic chardonnay – perfect for that great summer day on the deck….or anytime! After tasting Cottier wines at Friday drinks and loving it – I just had to order some.”
“Attending a wine tasting of Wairarapa wines and my friends and I agreed the Cottier Estate pinot noir (2010) was the outstanding wine of the evening. I happily purchased a case on the spot and have subsequently been in contact with Peter Cottier to order another case of the latest release pinot noir. The 2011 fully lived up to, if not exceeded, the standards set by the 2010. I can’t wait to try the 2012!”
“Cottier Wines consistently produce excellent Pinot Noirs, which I use as a benchmark to compare other Pinot Noirs”
