Description: La Veranda is part of the Georges Michel Estate complex, where visitors can choose a selection of wine tasting ‘flights’, matched with French degustation plates. For example, enjoy four of our Golden Mile wines featuring Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Rose, with a plate of imported French cheeses or a selection of French ‘charcuterie’.Nestled amongst the vines and bathed in Marlborough’s prolific sunshine, La Veranda is the perfect venue to rest and relax in a very special ambiance, either indoors or outdoors.

This venue, I understand is for group bookings, Doesn't appear to advertise this. We're there for a function Catering was Posh Nosh. Meal was average and didn't, think it was value for money, Staff were very attentive and willing to please. Atmosphere was great overlooking the vineyard. And very clean Suited itself for a lazy platter lunch. Had a good selection of wine ,and non alcoholic alternatives

We had heard some good reports and decided to call in for lunch.

There was a sign on Rapaura Road, and we duly turned off, a few hundred metres up a side road there was another sign, directing us to enter through some large gates. We entered and pulled in to the car park...only to be confronted by a sign that said "Closed".

Why on earth couldn't the sign on Raupara Road have indicated this? If the establishment is now only catering for weddings and functions the signage should state this.

We were not pleased to have our time wasted!

Lovely setting, delicious food perfect weather and delightful venue for a smallish wedding. It was lovely to be able to move indoors or outdoors all good and nothing seemed to trouble staff.

We dropped in for a late lunch and were very pleasantly surprised. Although the choices available on the menu were somewhat limited, the food was delicious and true french style. We had the plat du jour, a very tasty and satisfying boeuf bourguignon, and the charcuterie platter which featured 7 different meats including pork rillettes which were served warm. This was accompanied by a generous basket of excellent crusty sourdough bread. We had 2 different flights of wine which was a great way to sample 8 different wines. The staff were very attentive and the free wifi an added bonus. We loved it and will be back.
