Water was brought quickly and the menu was explained along with the wine options. Harissa marinated chicken breast with healthy bulgar salad and steak sandwich with chunky fries both super tasty and of adequate... More

The sparkling & Chardonnay wine at this winery are the stand outs. I personally found the hosts to be a bit "highly strung". Having said that, I did buy wine from here, I just wouldn't eat here.

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/

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
