We stopped there for lunch while out on a bike ride for the day. The food platter was very tasty and the dessert was excellent. The winery has a great atmosphere and it was nice and cool inside and pleasant to get out of the heat.

From the moment we arrived we were greeted by a nice French man who seated us beside a lovely couple because the place was so busy. The tasting of wine was a joy and the Pinot Gris was the star for us and accompanied the platter we got nicely. The grounds are stunning. A very nice afternoon spent basking in... More

Having visited Poppies a day earlier for a lovely wine tasting with Poppy we decided to head back for what looks like an amazing platter lunch. Unfortunately our booking was changed from outdoor seating to a table situated next to the wine tasting - to accomodate another group. This wasn't the end of the world however we really took exception... More

Poppies is one of the best wineries I've visited. They have very interesting range of wines. Staff was friendly and extremely professional. We also had lunch at the Poppies and the tasting plate was excellent.

This place is fab. Tasting of 5 or so superb wines is included in the $40 price of a great-value lunch platter which feeds 2 and contains an exquisite sampling of delicious, filling food - as shown. Poppy and Pip are friendly, welcoming hosts, and after wine tasting if desired you can order any of their delicious wines have with... More

We came here on recommendation for lunch, not for the wine tasting. Poppies has an excellent lunch platter which goes brilliantly with a range of wines. We had different wines and all complemented the varied foods. We loved the varied tastes from salmon, frittata with kumara, pumpkin hummus, delectable rare roast beef, perfectly ripened Brie, cold roast pork with crispy... More

We booked into Poppies a day ahead to ensure we could have lunch here after reading the reviews. The wine tasting was the most enjoyable experience, the best one we have every had. Poppie is so passionate about her wine, and she is a true entertainer with her stories. The lunch platter was very enjoyable and highly recommended.

In addition to creating fabulous wines, the Poppies Cafe is a must do experience. Convivial. Delicious. Just what you need during a wonderful Martinborough wine tour

If you are going for a wine-tasting.. please make a booking to avoid disappointment as the place is almost always full. We took a nice stroll around the vineyard & then had quite simply the BEST LUNCH PLATTER EVER.. Hats off to the chef.. The variety, the flavours & the presentation was simply outstanding.

Went on the basis of other Trip Advisor reviews and didn't disappoint. We didn't have a booking (NOT recommended) but they managed to accommodate us anyway and even get us an outside table when someone else's booking changed. Very informative & passionate wine tasting experience with Poppy herself who clearly loves what she does. Some great wines. Lunch itself, the... More
