How to Find Us

Kaimira location mapYou will find us just outside the village of Brightwater, which is 20 Km south of Nelson on SH 6. Turn off SH 6 at the Brightwater sign, drive through the village and over the Wai-iti River bridge. A winery sign points down Palmer Road to the right. Follow more signs for about 1 Km to the winery  at 97 Livingston Road.

Our cellar door is also an art space with exhibits by local Nelson artists, changed monthly. Almost all works are for sale and can be purchased from us; we remit all funds directly back to the artist.
