This is an excellent cellar door experience. Views are great staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The wines are great examples of Marlborough Sauvignon blanc
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
The only winery in the area (that we could find) that has tours. We stopped by the day before to check time for the following day. Our guide was informative and friendly and we were so glad we had this experience.
Great wine and beautiful setting. We did the behind the scenes 20-minute tour. Well worth doing. We liked their Sauvignon Blanc (75% of their production) and their Pinot Noir (15%). Go for lunch if you can. (Will likely need reservation.) Get the Vineland Platter. Full meal for 2-3 people.
Stopped at the vineyard and stayed for lunch. Very pleasant waiting staff who, despite being very busy, took the time to chat. A varied menu which gave a good range of food and a suggested wine. The food was well prepared and excellent value.
Really enjoyed the attention, insights and information afforded by our tasting host. Visited the cellar, tasted from a barrell of Pinot Noir then upstairs for a wide selection of white and light red tastings (we were delayed in arriving, but host very graciously incorporated us into the group and ensured we received the entire experience). Very personal, attentive service. Enjoyed... More
Beautiful building inside and out combined with charming and knowledgable staff made this a great place to stop. Wish we had time to try the restaurant, but perhaps next time. The kids enjoyed the free trip to the cellars below and climbed to the terrace and up further to the tower with great views over the region. Lovely informal seating... More
We visited on a very busy Sunday afternoon and while there was a short delay in getting our table the staff were great. The tasting staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. It was a lovely setting and very relaxing. The food was delicious and reasonable value for money.
Great service - really spot on. Very good wine selection. Food was tasty - not sure about piling salad on top of hot meat, I prefer salad to the side so that it doesn't "cook", but it was all tasty and fresh. Timing of food to the table was spot on, and portions were appropriate for a lunch menu. Lovely... More
We dined in 5 star restaurants in Auckland but none matched the value and quality of wither hills. We were greeted by excellent wait staff who were most helpful and were genuinely pleased we were at their winery. We were here the day before the food & wine festival so there were several people around but a great atmosphere! Excellent... More
