We visited Spy Valley as part of a tour we were on. The wines we sampled were of very high quality. The staff were very knowledgeable about the wines and the process involved in the wine making and shipping etc. Well worth a visit if you are in the Marlborough wine district of NZ

The tasting room and grounds are lovely. The staff were very knowledgable, friendly, and easy to talk with. The wines were good - nothing mind-blowing, but we bought a few bottles. The syrah was better than I expected it to be.

Thank you for taking the time to come out and visit us while you were in the region. Marlborough has quite a few gems hidden behind all the Sauvignon Blanc so we are glad you enjoyed the Syrah! More

We visited this because of a Trip adviser review. Our view match those we read. Exceptional wines and the friendly staff member who assisted us (Rachel) is a great assist to this winery. The wines ordered have just arrive via courier and now good to enjoy. Highly recommended.

Spy Valley Sauvignon Blanc is a wine my husband and I choose to buy when at home and we were looking forward to finding out a bit more about it when we visited Marlborough. Amanda gave us a fascinating 'behind the scenes tour' of the Spy Valley winery which was delivered in a friendly and humorous way. We then went... More

Arrived near the end of the day with no one else in sight. Greeted by Ashleigh Cleverley and a very friendly smile. Ashleigh was so welcoming and knowledgeable about their wines she made the visit the best of the day. The atmosphere at the winery was relaxed, warm and no pressure to buy. We were given the opportunity to experience... More
