Rock Ferry was recommended to us by the staff at Saint Clair Estate. It is a small winery with a cafe. The wines were excellent and the staff were very knowledgeable. It's great to see people who are passionate about their work. We had a tasting and liked the place so much we returned in the afternoon for a cheese... More

Really enjoyed our visit to Rock Ferry Wineries. Our tour guide Chris from Na Clachan Wine Tours took us here for a tasting and lunch. We are so glad he did. The wine was great and food was even batter! Read more about our experience here: http://www.peanutsorpretzels.com/experience-new-zealand-wine-private-wine-tour-marlborough-new-zealand/

This was my first time visiting Rock Ferry and I was really impressed with the high quality service and delicious food and wines. The restaurant and gardens are really pretty and create a very relaxed atmosphere.I would highly recommend a visit here.

We've been to Blenheim a bit over the last four years but this was our first visit to the Rock Ferry winery and cellar door. It was definitely worth the time and we'll go back in the future. The gentleman running the tastings was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and eager to talk about the wines at length. We didn't feel... More

We were the first to arrive on that day and while we were a bit early, we were greeted with open arms. We did a sampling of wine and at the recommendation of the waitress settled on a cheese tray and a late harvest Riesling for lunch - YUMMMMMMMM! The winery and restaurant is beautiful and we enjoyed walking the... More

A perfectly enjoyable and good cellar door, but not as good as some of the others. We also can't get the wine in the uk at all, which was disappointing. They did have a good range to try, and perfectly friendly, so 3 stars is probably a bit harsh, but it didn't quite make it to 4!

My gosh, had tried a couple of times to have lunch here, booked in advance. And I must say it is one of the best lunches I have ever had. Beautiful food and our table was outside with partial shade absolutely wonderful. Great service and excellent food. Definately going back
