Beautiful grounds, and the staff were very patient and passionate about explaining their wines to us. Good wine, but nothing stood out for us. There's a restaurant with lovely outdoor seating in the winter sunshine, but we didn't go as we'd already had lunch.

This is the oldest Winery in NZ. The place has great history to it. We didn't eat at the restaurant as it was very expensive, but the wines we tasted were great. But, if you're up for a good winery, we preferred the Church Road Estate located next door - better reds and restaurant.

The worst experience I've had in New Zealand. Rude staff. They treat people like nuisances. I had to approach someone to get service and I said to the lady 'How are you today?' Her answer was: 'Good' and she continued doing her own thing. We were prepared to buy a few bottles, but we decided to go elsewhere instead. Never... More

We visited this winery in late summer. The place is not huge but definitely informative and you get to taste the beautiful wine (which has since been my favourite), and take some of your favourites home! Wonderful place with brilliant service, sommelier who taught us lots about wine drinking!
