It's all about Dennis! I visit Waipara Hills whenever I can, and make it a point to take everyone that comes to visit me there. Recently a friend from Wellington ws down and Waipara Hills was out first stop. We were lucky enough to get Dennis as our tasting guide (let me be clear, ALL the staff are fantastic, but there's something special about Dennis) and a couple of tate tests turned into a journey of discovery for my friend as she quickly learned many of the reasons why she liked the wines she does and why not to discredit any kind based on a previous experience with a different wine. I can't forget to mention the food and atmosphere is incredible and there isn't a better place to relax and enjoy on a beautiful day. Did I mention the staff are fantastic?!?! Now you'll have to excuse me as I put this review to bed and enjoy the bottles of wine Dennis sold us today. 😉 👍
Equinox chardonay yum! Outdoor courtyard, while covered in spider webs, was sunny and the outlook lovely. Just a shame about the service. Wait staff standing around and not once did they come outside to clear plates or see if we wanted another wine.
What a lovely setting and property. Such a shame about the attitude of the staff, made to feel inferior and not welcome at all.
Unfortunately they were close early today.
Nice view on the terrace outside. The seafood platter was really delicious but the taste plate dessert was less convincing. Very nice wines as well. Perfect place for a stop over lunch.
