It was my first visit to Blenheim and when I visited the Visitor Information Center in town they advised me of Wither Hills for an afternoon excursion. I was told of an observation deck to lookout on the views of the wineries which were golden in colour this time of year. It was postcard perfect with the mountains in the... More

Visited three vineyards on our 2015 visit to Blenheim. Wither Hills was our first tasting. Excellent choice, great wines, friendly informative staff. All in all a great experience in a beautiful setting.

what a beautiful place to visit. Brenda, our sommelier was fantastic, so knowledgeable and so enthusiastic............took us from absolute novices to understanding a whole lot more about wines and what things make the difference in taste, and all without being patronising and pretentious.

LIving in Blenheim for 20 years you dont appreciate what's on your doorstep. Travelled back there and for old times sake (used to walk it with my Nan and run it for school cross country) went for a wander to check it out. Had forgotten how amazing the views are and how tranquil the walk can be. The look out... More

This is a large production winery, however the tasting experience was personal and informative. The host explained how we can easily ship wine home and was helpful in general. I would recommend this winery for the beautiful setting and professional staff. The wine was above average.

If you like a medium fitness level hike with stunning views (Minimum 1hr) you must do this next time you visit Blenheim. Even when you get to the first pit stop the views are magnificent, not only across the Wairau plains but on a clear day you can see the North Island and if you are lucky, you can see... More

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
