Our fabulous monthlong holiday in New Zealand included many many wineries, in North and South Island. Ash Ridge has a 'cellar door', meaning a shop where you can taste and buy. The prices are very reasonable and you'll taste wines that you will never see in the UK as the production is small. Worth a visit, this one!

You can tell the difference at a winery when talking with the wine maker. There passion for there product shows and normally makes it a great wine tasting. The location here is really nice and you can take your time. Have been here before and enjoyed there wines each time.

This is the type of winery we like, one of the smaller and more intimate ones. The welcome was friendly and the wines delicious. Join their wine club as that provides you with a selection of their wines throughout the year, delivered to your door for a minimal outlay. We look forward to our next visit and the next box...

We hired good bikes for a mornings cycle around the local wineries. Ash Ridge set us up with lots of local knowledge. The great thing is all the bike trails keeping you well away from any traffic so you can drink and bike responsibly!!

Fabulous wines and a authentic experience. Winemaker talked through his wines with a down home genuineness that was so refreshing after all the large corporate vineyards. Yes its rustic but that's its charm. Very good food, excellent wine and great coffee. We're fans.

This small winery has a restaurant, shop and tasting area. We were only there for wine tasting and we left with a wealth of information. The winery shop has a selection of wines, olive oil and posters.

Small cellar door immersed in the vineyards. Phillip guided us through 3 whites, 2 reds, and 1 rose showcasing the North Island's wine character. He went above and beyond by storytelling each wine and educating us too. The cheese board with house-made syrah jelly should not be missed!

This was a lovely relaxed lunch in a peaceful setting. The owners are very happy to chat about wine and wine-producing, at quite some length! Menu choice was not huge but the platters were good for sharing. Service was a bit slow. No need to book here, unlike some of the other wineries.
