I loved Vynfields but hadn't visited for about 2 years. I was a bit shocked at how run down the place looked when I first arrived, the gardens were pretty untidy & the grass was full of patches, lots of weeds & overgrown plants. When we ordered wines, we realised the place had been sold & new owners were present.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, we loved the hot tub, log burner and the bottle of Vynfields wine on our arrival! It was a special weekend for us and the setting was perfect. We had breakfast foods left for us and nice little vases of fresh flowers from the garden in every room. Nice outlook onto the vines, having breakfast... More

Can't fault this place at all. Great views, amazing grounds and property, divine wines, big cats, love it. They also provide lovely antipasti and snacks to mop up all that wine you'll be tempted by. Sadly the original owners have sold up since visiting last but looking forward to visiting again! Highly recommended.

We booked 6 months ago for a large group of us in March. I reconfirmed the booking the week before and everything was all locked in. We had come all the way from Auckland for a special weekend away, as we arrived at Vynfields we discovered that Vynfields had rudely closed the doors and stood us up. I was unable... More

We had spent a month travelling around NZ & we stayed in Martinborough for our last weekend. Vynfields was the perfect choice, a lovely 2 bedroom cottage looking out over the vineyard, it has it's own cedar hot tub to soak in at night & an old coal/wood burning BBQ to use. Everything was perfect. We also had a lovely... More

The heading above really says it all if the weather is fine; peaceful garden setting some glasses of wine with friends looking out over rows of vines, shared platters of assorted meats, pickles and cheeses. We did the 5 wine matches which is good value considering the size of the wine glasses you get. Platters, wines, cake, coffees, came to... More

This is my absolute favourite place to visit in the Wairarapa. The hospitality, the wine, the delicious antipasto platters, and the beautiful homely environment are outstanding. I recommend Vynfields to all of my friends and family.

Recently had a conference retreat for a few days in Martinborough and a trip around the vines was arranged by our hosts. Out of all the wineries we toured, Vynfields stood out by far with no comparison. Their organic wine is simply the best. My favorite wine sampled was the Mad Rooster followed by the Rose. Our group raved about... More

What a perfect setting for a relaxing break away from the city. My partner and I spent a lovely two nights staying at the cottage at Vynfields. We loved the big roaring open fire in the evening and relaxing in the hot tub. During the day we made the short walk into Martinborough (about 10 minutes) and visited the local... More

An escape weekend away from Wellington with friends was just what the doctor ordered, and we weren't disappointed when we discovered Vynfields Winery. We went late in the day for a wine tasting, and were so impressed by the attentive and interested owners and staff, that we went back for a leisurely brunch on the Sunday. Again, we weren't disappointed!... More
