We went to do the little 'Vine to Wine' tour and had the most enjoyable hour or so you could imagine. I wish I could remember the name of the lovely lady who showed us around (she was a chardonnay fan!) who was knowledgeable and interesting, but kept the atmosphere light and relaxed. The wine tasting was great and I... More

This fabulous winery has a slew of wines to try, and they're happy to spend as much time with you and let you taste as many wines as you'd like. My husband and I visited late morning on a weekday in early November with our 11 month old son. They were very welcoming and even showed us their play area... More

It would be a waste if whilst visiting the Marlborough Valley you did not take time out to visit one of the local winery. We chose Wither Hills as it combined all the elements we wanted to cover during our visit. It has a great restuarant where you can; sample their wine together with great food, have a wine tasting...

Wow! The Wither Hills winery is truly amazing and a must visit. We were lucky enough to have a tour of the facility which supported the winemaking experience. The staff were friendly and knowledgable. It would appear this winery is one of the biggest, if not the largest, so had a selection of wines to sample. We did stay for... More

Visited winery on a gourmet wine tour with sounds connection which I would also definitely recommend. Our personal guide Samara was wonderful teaching us all the ins and outs. Wine was the best we tasted. Winery itself was very picturesque. A must inclusion if u visiting the Marlborough wine region.

Wine tasting offered by Dennise. Fantastic experience, very knowledgeable lady who listened to out tastes and responded to them getting us to try wines we normally would not and so changed our ideas on two wines, especially Chardonnay. Great wines and lovely location.

When you tour the Marlborough, NZ area wineries, make time to visit Wither Hills and enjoy the setting, the view, its architecture but most of all the excellent pinot noir wines they produce. We were treated to an enthusiastic presentation by Katrina who demonstrated the clarity of the wines by shining a light through the tasting glass onto a sheet... More
