Enjoyed a lovely evening meal here- great service, lovely food and ambiance- its NZ s oldest vineyard so comes with some interesting history - rather ironically I am not a big wine drinker so I can not comment on that side of the place but Im guessing after 150 years they've got it right! Well worth a visit if ur... More

We only came here to look around, but were greeted with very friendly staff and ended up having a tour and wine tasting with Trevor, who was both informative and amusing. He really knew his wine! The building is fabulous having had a considerable amount of money put into it. The gardens and everything about it is beautifully maintained. The... More

We arrived a little early for our lunch booking but were told this was fine and shown to an outside table in the beautiful gardens. The waiter took our order for aperitifs but cleared away the cutlery and serviettes, despite being told that we would be eating. Having chosen from the menu, we tried in vain to catch any waiter's...

Firstly this is a beautiful location - it was a sunny day and looking out over the vineyards with the grand building in the background was quite lovely. We arrived before a couple of large tour groups (one that had booked, one that had not) and were greeted quickly and offered tastings. We were able to sample a broad selection... More

We were there for dinner tonight. Ordered lamb and fish. Meals were good but the waiter seated 5 very loud guests at the table next to us. We had been enjoying our wine and dinner until that point but within 5 minutes we couldn't even hear our own conversation and it totally ruined dinner. I didn't finish my lamb or... More

We had a very informative and intersting time at the celler door wine tasting. We also had a quick bite to eat which was lovely.

Oldest winery in NZ established in 1851 by French Missionaries. It's very close to Napier town and it's on beautiful grounds and they do lovely fish and chips. Their savignon Blanc was lovely and fresh.

I came here in April 2014 with my family and mother in law. Great food and wine and beautiful grounds. This is an excellent venue for weddings and special occasions.

The restaurant has beautiful winery view and the food is ok complementing with the setting. However the waitress that was serving us has spoilt the whole experience. She does not smile to us when taking the order and was actually throwing the menu to us when we request for dessert menu. There is no name tag on the staff and... More
