  • Wine is not my drink of choice. However, several years ago on another trip to Aotearoa I was introduced to the superb Waipara Hills riesling and underwent a viticultural epiphany. Imagine my delight w...  more »

  • Susanne was a great host. Mum and I tried all the Pinot Noir varieties. Mum bought 2 bottles to bring back to Cali. I brought the sketchbook and watercolors but didn't have much time to bust them out as they close at 5.
  • Ambience is good. Food wasnt great, but we got not too pleasant greetings from one of the waitress for whatever reasons. My guess is the waitress thought we wont be able to spend much there but we spent nzd 120++ for the foods. Need to improve to treat the customers irregardless what color they are........
  • Had a wine tasting here as part of a day tour. Customer service was terrible, half way through our waitress walked off to answer the phone and walked off again to start another tasting. Wine seemed okay though and the place does look nice.
  • The staff were enthusiastic, friendly, and very knowledgeable. We had a great experience wine tasting.
  • Very beautiful place to visit, very good customer service and great range of wines.
