Inspired by ancient Greek mythology
The Silenes were constant companions of Dionysus, the god of wine, vineyards and theater. As soon as a celebration was due, the Silenes were on hand to indulge in delicious food, good wine and pleasure.
This inspiration gave the winery the name Sileni Estates in 1998.
Recognition all along the line
The Sileni can also be found as a symbol in the logo, represented as a triangle. The three angles of the triangle stand for
- good food
- good wine and
- good company
The enclosing circle symbolizes the global orientation of the company and everything Sileni stands for.
The New Zealand wine regions
Sileni Estates is located in the sub-region of the Bridge Pa Triangle in sunny Hawke's Bay. With great pride and respect for the region, Sileni vinifies wines that reflect the full potential of the stunning terroir.
On the hotter, sea-level plains, Merlot, Syrah and Semillon are vinified. On the cooler, higher foothills and coastal resorts, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc grapes feel most at home.
World famous for Sauvignon Blanc, this wine region cannot be missing in the portfolio of Sileni Estates. From its own vineyards and in collaboration with local producers, Sauvignon Blanc is grown in Marlborough.
The art of winemaking
Every day, Sileni Estates ' winemakers face the challenge of maintaining the purity of the grapes - while ensuring high quality to create memorable wines. This is at the heart of Sileni's business. It is the only way to bring light, elegant wines to the glass that perfectly match selected dishes.
Here's to good food, good wine and unforgettable evenings in good company.
