  • The knowledge and tasting here is fantastic. There is also a variety of food to enjoy. The views from here are stunning and you could easily spend a few hours just lazing around here.  more »

  • 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 . If you purchased half cost given back . 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 ;)
  • Excellent NZ wine. LVMH.
  • I felt that considering the prices the wines themselves are very underwhelming. Not horrible, but not great either - considering the competition in the area it appears that this vineyard gets the bulk of its foot traffic based on the name alone.
  • So much fun!!! Bought some nice wine
