    This is a very pretty place with a cozy room for wine tasting. You choose six wines from their rather extensive list, have a seat by a window overlooking the vines, and your flight is brought to your table. I love tasting wine this way; you can go at your own pace and discuss them freely with your companions. You'll probably be saying nice things because the wine here is very good; we bought at least two bottles.

    Malbec and the Pinot are great. Love this place. Wish I could've spent more time here. Becky was SO welcoming. Answered all of our questions. We left with so much more knowledge on wine. Had to go back here (after visiting a handful of other wineries) because there's is the best. Save your time just buy a bottle after tasting 😊

    Lovely quaint winery, family run, with very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Come here for a wine tasting on a good day and relax outdoors in the beanbags. Beth's bubbles got our top pick as something unique and refreshing!

    Not only is this the best wine I've had but the customer service and response is exceptional. I ordered online and within 3 days (after the earthquake in Kaikoura) my delivery arrived. It was in perfect condition and now my Christmas shopping is complete. Amazing work team!
