  • This place was just seamlessly wonderful. Staff, where friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.
  • 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.
  • 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.
