  • Disappointed , all about advertising and attitude , not service . Average wines offered for tasting that you paid a cover charge , but not what they are famous for .

They have the name but I suggest that other local Marlborough wineries are better no comparison on Mendoza area Aguentina , Barossa , Mclaren Vale South Australia .
  • The place is very scenic with nice swings and great relaxing area behind! Didn't get any wines though as it was on the pricer side 4 me ;)

  • So much fun!!! Bought some nice wine
