Come taste our terroir

The icon of Clos Henri and the heart of our estate, Sainte Solange Chapel started life in the 1920’s as a Presbyterian country church in the village of Ward, on the outskirts of Marlborough.

In 2003 the chapel was relocated onto the vineyard to begin a new life as the tasting room for Clos Henri. This quaint building was deconsecrated and named ‘Sainte Solange’ in memory of Henri Bourgeois’s wife Solange Bourgeois.

Made of Rimu, a native New Zealand timber, the chapel was lovingly restored; and a wooden steeple was added to act as a tie to the Bourgeois family’s home village of Chavignol, in Sancerre, France.

Today the quintessentially kiwi landmark, with a touch of European charm, hosts guests to Clos Henri for wine and food experiences, local events and is an idyllic setting for wedding, outdoor events and intimate meetings – surrounded by stunning vineyards.
