Enjoy a wine tasting then lunch. Sit inside or outside down by the pond. Good menu with great examples of kiwi food, lamb rack, or get adventurous. Staff friendly but some need to brush up on their wine knowledge. It is a winery. Backpackers employed not locals.

The service was great, surroundings excellent, food average. Quality good. Excellent wine. It is a shame I did not visit in the summer, as under the grape vines would have been spectacular. Unfortunately those pesky household flies were a bit of a nuisance.

If you are anywhere close to Kerikeri be sure and stop here for an antipasto and black rocks Chardonnay. The setting welcoming and beautiful. It's family friendly and lots of space to roam around.

Had to try and catch staff attention for wine tasting, as the only staff were walking past us to and from the kitchen. Finally got to the tasting, which felt rushed. Place not that busy for Friday early afternoon so not sure why the mediocre service. Won't be rushing back.

We went to Marsden to taste their wines after enjoying a glass of Marsden's Pinot Gris wine at a restaurant out of the area, while traveling in New Zealand. We liked their wines, especially the Pinot Gris, which we ended up buying some to take home with us. Highly recommend. Wish we could swing back by their Kerikeri, NZ location... More

Shown on the Kerikeri wine tour map, well signed from the main road; a delightful experience with a good range of wines, something for all tastes.

Went here for lunch with a friend. The food was great we shared a few starters and did some wine tasting. Great helpful staff. It was quite busy when we were here but we still had a great experience and were well attended too. Beautiful out look over a pond and the vineyard. Highly recommend.

Arrived at 1 PM. The restaurant view is beautiful overlooking the vineyard. Good service and a very tasty lunch. We were unsure which wine to have with lunch so we went off for a tasting pre lunch..Sauvignon Blanc and viognier were both excellent Highly enjoyable
