Nice set up and professional staff. Obviously a bigger set up than other wineries but well worth stopping off. Bubbles was a particularly good find although all wines were good.

We had such a lovely visit here with the nice woman who was pouring the wine. She provided an excellent background on the winery and the wines. She was easy going and answered all of our questions with a smile. Stop here for a taste if you can!

This was our last visit to a winery in Martinborough and it was just before 4pm. They officially close at 5pm. When we arrived there was no one in the tasting room (which is really nice). Eventually a woman arrived who was a bit flustered and said she had a meeting at 4pm. So she conducted a very fast tasting... More

Great first stop in a Martinborough wine tour. Delightful bubbles to start the day and tastings were free.

I happen to like Palliser wines very much, especially the juicy, mouth-watering sav. Actually the whole district produces excellent sauvignon blanc and pinot noir. Nice town, plagued by Wellingtonians in the weekends.

Free tasting, unlike many others. The gentleman who looked after us was friendly, knowledgeable and very patient given how close to "closing time" it was. He was very enthusiastic about the wines and obviously enjoyed telling us about them without being at all pushy. Surroundings were pleasant and the wines excellent.

This was the last winery we visited of the day (five in all). It didn't have the atmosphere or scenery like the other wineries we visited, but the wines were delicious, especially the Sauvignon Blanc. I even bought two bottles to pack away for my travels back to the U.S.

The winery was very interesting, the wines superb but staffing poor. Far too many people including booked groups for one staff member to cope with.We left without tasting the full range and visited the shop in the village for purchases.
