The entrance is imposing with beautiful lawns and lake. The buildings are modern and grand. The Cellar Door is beautifully designed and elegant. We tried a range of their wines and also given a treat of one of their special wines. All lovely except for one which my husband identified as oxidised. After discussion it was agreed that he was...

Beautiful winery, we had a very knowledgeable young man who told us all about the wines, we could try and there was no obligation to buy, although we did buy two bottles and the wine was lovely. Views upto Te Mata and the surrounding area are stunning. Would visit again.

We had not booked for lunch on a Monday. We were basically given the cold shoulder, despite the appearance that there were many tables available. The staff were unhelpful and unwelcoming. We hate to think the impression this gives to overseas visitors to our beautiful country.

Visited here for lunch and tastings. Excellent service and food, we sat outside on the terrace and it will take some beating for the views from it. The wines weren't half bad too. The staff were very knowledgeable of the story of the vineyard and took an obvious pride in it the buildings are also quite splendid. Well worth the... More

We are at Craggy Range to celebrate my birthday, and had a delightful evening. The food and wine were excellent, the service friends, courteous and efficient. But the ambiance really made the evening. It's a lovely setting by the river and tucked under the hills. The grounds are immaculate. We chose to sit outside, but when the temperature got a... More

we visited as a family of 4 adults. The staff in their own clothes (assume shift managers) were both rude and unhelpful. Our waitress was fantastic and very knowledgable. The food was ok but certainly not worth the price and doesn't compare to other similar vineyards. Sitting on their deck in the surroundings was magical but would go only for... More

Wine here as you would expect is excellent and the tasting experience good with a knowledgable team. It feels more commercialised than the smaller estates but I guess that's what you would expect.

Lovely building, gorgeous wines and the staff knew what they were talking about. Free tastings, I bought a bottle and they put it in a lovely box as it was a gift. I've noticed some of the wines in the supermarkets now so that's handy.

We dined here in a large group with a range of ages. The meal was delicious and the service excellent. The sommelier was very helpful and we tasted a range of whites and reds. The pinot noir was our new favourite wine. Great spot to relax in. Olive oil also deliciously peppery and can be purchased. The gardens are wonderful... More
