My wife and I went out for lunch here as the menu was to our taste though unfortunately it did not deliver. The spicy chicken was very dry to say the least, tasteless salad and unusual flavored rice with no sauce to tie the flavours together, followed by a sweet coffee ( no sugar ) and burnt biscuit . It... More

We spent a lovely hour with winemaker Astrid and learned a lot about the wine making process and about NZ wine and Wither Hills in particular. It was just my husband and I on the Vine to Wine tour, so we enjoyed the opportunity to ask as many questions as we wanted and get a really personal tour. We tasted... More

One of the better vineyards we visited. Wine: Well-balanced wine with good ageing potential. Try the 2005 and/or 2008 Pinot Noir if you get the chance. Service: Very warm and welcoming staff at this cellar door. More than happy to talk about their wines, and have you try them. Would have loved to have tried the food, but we had... More

Loved the vineyard and the view from the top of the building was fantastic. Being able to go down to the cellar was also a kick! Quite nice wines, some were a little fresh but all in all it was a good visit.

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.

We enjoyed tasting the white & red wines as Wither Hills wines are one of our favourite's from NZ. The restaurant... More
