  • This is in a pretty hacienda-style building with a nice tasting room. We very much enjoyed tasting their wines and especially loved one that's not available in stores. It goes to show it's worth visiting wineries even when you think you know their wines well!
  • Best tasting out of 7 we did in the area. Filly was just brilliant and a joy to be around.
  • We did the winetasting while we were in Blenheim for a couple of weeks. It´s amazing how delicious wine can be. The service was very helpful and could answer all he questions. U can also buy the wine and send them overseas :)
  • Great service here and the wine is beautiful too. Very knowledgeable staff.
  • Steven gave us an amazingly comprehensive discussion covering grapes, soil, wine types and of course a tasting of 3 white 3 red and 1 dessert wine (all complementary). Many thanks to Villa Maria and specifically to Steven :-)
