Really friendly and informative front of house

This was a small winery and tasting room but that just made it more personal and the chap running the show made everyone feel individual and welcome. Good wine.

We did a self guided cycle tour (via company "Wine Tours By Bike") and stopped by at Bladen. It was lovely to meet Christine and also learn about how she and her husband began in the wine industry. Her passion and enthusiasm about wine really came across and it was a delight to sample the Bladen wines. There was no... More

We stopped by Bladen for a tasting on an organised tour and everyone in the group agreed they were our favourite stop that day. All the wines we tasted were winners, and the added touch of having Christine, one of the owners, pass on some history of the estate just added to the experience. All in our group of eight... More

Well worth a visit to sample a small, family winery that has some very interesting wines. The owners are very friendly and the tasting area is very rustic - quite a change from the bigger wineries.

This was our last cellar door on our wine tour. One of our faves. The owner has a friendly red setter dog and the outdoor setting was lovely. The wines superb.

We arrived on bikes about 1/2 hour before closing. We chatted with the owner while tasting, and really enjoyed the stories about how they started the winery. We ended up buying two bottles.

I stopped by the Bladen cellar door because several other guests at my hotel said it was their favorite stop. What a great recommendation...it's a small, family-run winery with lots of passion. My favorite was the Cab-Merlot blend. They charge for the tasting, but if you buy a bottle, they reduce the price by the tasting fee.

After visiting a number of Blenheim area wineries and being served indifferent wines by indifferent staff, we stumbled upon this gem. Great wines, explained with enthusiasm and real knowledge by the lovely daughter of the family. No wonder we were happy to purchase! Definitely not one to miss if you are in the area.
