Everything was great: the wines (i loved that you could compose your own flight) the platter (absolutely delicious olive oil by the way) and the view sitting outside in the sun overlooking the ranks, in sum: perfect!

From the moment you walk in there is a welcoming feeling to this winery. The dining area is open to the great outdoors but can be protected from wind or rain as required. The lunch was sharing platters which were delicious and worked well with the range of glasses of wine we tried. There is a wine tasting facility for... More

i visited Randsom Winery last Sunday with my parents-in-law and they well behaved border collie. They were very accomodating, seating us at the outside table on the outside deck to allow our dog to enjoy the experience with us. We tasted the wines first to decide on our favourite bottle to have with lunch. Lunch consisted of a large platter... More

My husband had had a tough week at work, and it was time to get him away from Auckland and the jobs that always need doing around our property. I had visited 'Ransom' with friends a couple of weeks ago and decided this was to be a treat for him. Located just before Warkworth township the journey was short (he... More

So after poodling around Matakana, the family figured it'd be rude not to have a wine on ANZAC day to remember the fallen, we had driven past their sign many times. But decided we'd pull in. We were glad we did, a great tasting was had, with a very knowledgable man (the owner I believe). Tried some very different (for... More

We visited the Ransom Winery today for a late lunch and it was perfect! We had such great service and started with a wine tasting flight of 6 wines which was insightful and beautiful. Loved the Chardonnay and Albariño. From there we sat outside for a vineyard platter and it was beautiful and great value with lots of delicious local... More

Beautiful food and beautiful wines in a beautiful setting. Simple really. I am sure lots of people have thought about stopping on the drive north. Well just do it, you wont regret it.

We loved our experience at Ransom Winery, sharing a delicious platter of gourmet foods (sourced locally) and enjoying a "flight" of wine. My husband and I were each able to select 5 wines to try, which were served in a row of glasses. They were all very nice wines! The grounds are lovely with (obviously) a vineyard and we enjoyed...

We love stopping off at this winery on a trip north. It's such an enjoyable experience to sit overlooking the vines with a delectable platter of so many lovely titbits to share. There is always a good wine available to enhance the occasion, and we usually leave with a few bottles tucked under an arm. It is always interesting to... More
