In ancient Greece the Sileni were companions of Dionysus, the god of wine, vineyards and theatre. When there was something to be celebrated, the Sileni were always on hand to encourage enjoyment of delicious food, great wine and social interaction. Named in their honour, Sileni Estates produces a range of wines from Hawke’s Bay and Marlborough, made to be great collaborators with a talent for enhancing flavours and textures. Sileni Estates Cellar Door is the complete food and wine destination.
