  • This vineyard has the nicest setting we saw in Blenheim (we visited 11). Just got a glass of our favourite wine, admired the amazing views, whilst chilling in the egg shaped tree swings . . . bliss
  • This is a beautiful place with excellent wines. Well worth a visit!
  • Apart from the food and wine, the grounds are a fine attraction. Not a bad way to spend a sunny afternoon.
  • Amazing vineyard to visit. Beautiful scenery, super tasty wines and cheeses, definitely recommend visiting if you are in the area.
  • Did a $10 wine tasting here. The wines are nice. A pleasant feature were the seating in the surrounds and a few activities to keep the children entertained.
