  • 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!
  • Beautiful spot and home of the Forrest Estate Grape Ride aka Cycle Race. Awesome selection of wine too.
