We found this vineyard almost by accident as we were taking a shortcut around Blenheim heading up to the Picton ferry. We decided to stop for a wine tasting and were not disappointed. We especially enjoyed the Sauvignon Blanc, but they were all very good.

We stopped in at this little winery in the middle of the afternoon for coffee and desert and they were quite happy to provide, even though we didn't want to taste their wine (not every winery cafe is so gracious!). The coffee was OK, the peach crumble excellent and the staff friendly and professional. All in all a lovely setting,... More

Don't repeat it, but I really really like their wines (Sauvignon and Pinot Gris) but where it got really intereting (like in so many wineries in NZ) is when we stayed for a meal at their restaurant after the tasting. Madame la Chef made a very good impression on us with her market dish of the day, a perfectly cooked... More

If you are dining in, then there is a complimentary wine tasting which was fantastic. The staff were wonderful. Beautiful setting and it was very busy. Definately need to book in ahead. Food was very good, presented nicely.

Lunch was flawless from the moment we walked in (late) till we left. Fantastic wine, stunning food, amazing setting but the service was the best we had experienced in Blenheim, if not the rest of NZ in a very long time!!!! A must do for lunch

A Father's Day treat of coffee and dessert staff were attentive and the place was very busy. The coffee was well made and the desserts to die for. I had caramel profiterole. Hubby had the chocolate tart which was well balanced and although I don't do chocolate desserts I loved the mouthful I was allowed. Son had vanilla cup with... More

We visited for a wine tasting. The place was heaving with diners, but the friendly lady who served us kept finding the time in between other pressures, to chat with us about our wine tasting choices, and to make us feel we were important customers to her. The wines were an interesting mix, with the botrytis riesling a standout.

Great staff and recommend booking the place. The staff were busy with the restaurant but took the time to explain to us about the wine. Great wine recommend trying the corners marlbourough sauvignon blanc 2013. Must come and try the wine

My partner and I visited for lunch today and were blown away! The food was absolutely delish and the wine recommendation matched beautifully. Was nice to receive a free tasting with our meal too. Highly recommended to others, I will definitely be coming back next time I'm in Blenheim.

These guys really changed my mind on what I thought of Chardonnay. I really like theirs. Enjoyed everything we tasted. Our time was short so we only tried 4of the many on offer. The way they offer the tasting was really relaxed compared to other tastings and you are left for a few minutes to savour and discuss your thoughts... More
