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

Myself and my wife to be took some advice to visit the vineyard. Unfortunately, this turned out to be a major mistake. We where served by, we believe, one of the owners and were subject to a very rude individual. On asking questions regarding the vineyard, I received a response that showed the establishments true colours. I asked a simple... More

Second time I have visited Rock Ferry.....believe me it is easy if you book if you want to dine then you wont be disappointed if they are busy (and they usually are). Very good cellar door experience and this followed through to the meal outside on the deck. Great thing is the wines available at the cellar door are exactly... More

We stopped here for a tasting after a morning in the Omaka Aviation Center and had to stay for lunch. Everything smelled so good we ended up sitting at a table basically in the tasting room, not even in the dining area (which was booked solid - so if you have the foresight it may be worth making a reservation)...
