    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

    Okey wines but not the best. No organic grapes. Needs to use less sulfur. Sauvignon blanc from 2005 smelled sulfur/old egg for first 10 min.

    Apart from the food and wine, the grounds are a fine attraction. Not a bad way to spend a sunny afternoon.
