  • Really beautiful building and location. We had their basic tasting, which was very good. Wines were excellent, and the host knowledgable and friendly without being too intruding. However, I felt that 4 wines were not enough given the price of the tasting. It would also have been nice to have had the opportunities to taste their top wines for an additional price (say, an extra $10 to try the Sophia). I came to this winery specifically to try this wine and was very disappointed not to get the chance.
  • Waited over 20 mins for a tasting and one of the staff actually took my price list away while I was waiting. This is a beautiful location but I'm sorry to find that professionalism and courtesy is lacking from their staff. I watched as they actually ignored a person (who was in the process of buying a not inexpensive bottle) asking a question about their wine. I understand that it gets busy but better customer service (like giving full attention to the customer you are currently helping or letting people know when you need to step away for a moment) would improve the experience here.
  • We did the 35 dollar wine tasting. It was great. We had a personal assistant helping us and explaining the wines. Would highly recommend it.
  • Was a good learning experience about NZ wines. Staff is knowledgeable, generously sharing information. Lunch at winery restaurant was a lovely addition to tasting Thank you
  • Great Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah. Very cool atmosphere. Knowledgeable staff.
