Michael Seresin was born in Wellington, New Zealand, but left in the 1960s, when sheep, not grapevines, covered the Wairau Plains. He settled in Italy, where he was captivated by Italian food and wine culture, and began his career as a cinematographer. Over time Michael's interest in wine developed into a passion. In the early 1990s after investigating opportunities to start a winery in Italy, he became aware of the quality wines starting to emerge from his homeland. After visiting Marlborough, and falling in love with the Marlborough Sounds, Michael decided to purchase a home there, followed by the purchase of some land in the Wairau Valley, which became Seresin's Home vineyard. Planting of vines began immediately, followed by the importation and planting of Tuscan olive varieties and significant plantings of natives. Seresin's first vintage was in 1996. In 2000 the Tatou vineyard was purchased, a year later land in the Omaka valley was aquired for development into our Raupo Creek vineyard. – Description from AlexJelena

  • Seresin Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This wine was smooth with a little bit of creaminess finish. It was a powerful combination of citrusy fruits, floral aroma, and berries. This wine was great for its price! Read More

  • Seresin Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Lots of crisp notes of cucumber and nuts, especially almonds, a dab of sweetness rounds out the rich and complex body, along with minerally citrus flavors, grassiness, peach, and melon. Read More

  • Seresin Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Zingy cucumber, bell pepper and lemon zest nose that seems to pop right out of the glass. Quite refreshing flavors, full of fresh ripe acidity, lemons and limes, an herbal quality, basil maybe. Fresh and interesting! Read More

  • Seresin Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Very grassy nose, with a touch of lemongrass. Prickling acidity, pears and peaches with a gooseberry finish. The finish has some minerality. A nice, complex sauvignon blanc. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Earthy nose thats rich and very complex. Hints of peach break through. Oily and luxurious in the mouth with a dry, oaky finish with plenty of spice. A very powerful complex pinot grigio. Read More

  • Seresin Pinot Gris Marlborough 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Slightly sulphury floral and hoppy, with reticent notes of quince paste, with a touch of chalk and a hint of salt. Round in the mouth and a touch soft with the alcohol showing a bit. A spicy yet clean style of PG with a touch of green herbal character. A bit dusty and lean on the finish that has more of that almost salty, mineral character. ... Read More
