I was the lucky winner of a trip sponsored by Brancott wineries. What an amazing time my husband and I had! We were there on Valentines Day, perfect for celebrating this experience. Brancott gave us a Master Wineries class, featuring their delicious Sauvignon Blancs, and an outstanding lunch paired with wines. The views are as unforgettable as the food. It... More

Had lunch here on a sunny winters day. The views are awesome and on a clear day can see the Wellington hills. The architecture of the building is stunning allowing diners to maximise their views. The building will be 3 years old in September. To blend in with the rural setting the roof is covered with small stones. Diners could... More

I have enjoyed two visits to this magical place in Marlborough. The views, architecture of the building and stunning food and wine make for an amazing combination. What more could you want.

Food was great, highlight was the slow cooked lamb and the Warm treacle dessert which was fantastic. Great atmosphere, great service and amazing view over the vineyards.

I've been here a few times and always been very well received and along with my guests suitably entertained while learning the history of their wines. A must view if you like to see the mosaic patterns of endless rows of vines complimented by very good service.

Beautiful autumn day for lunch and to marvel at the view. We had nz John Dory which was superb. We didn't try wines as we prefer the smaller, family operated vineyards but the wine with lunch was very good.

Had a very relaxed lunch. The views were stunning. Property is beautiful and you can see a lot of thought went into the design of the building. Book ahead of time, restaurant was filled. Saw several disappointed folks turned away. Food was good. Had the port which was delicious. Also started with fresh fig and honey dish--yum. Wines were good... More

I love visiting winery and Brancott Estate is hands down one of the most amazing and impressive vineyards I have ever been. The estate is as huge and far as your eyes can see. And apparently, they own not only this estate, but also few other estates in other parts of Blenheim. So you can imagine the wealth of experience... More

Had a fabulous experience here. Nothing was an issue. All staff were warm, friendly and most welcoming. The wine is fabulous and the food is delicious. I had the chicken salad and it was just perfect. Hubby had pork which he loved too. Views are amazing. Bathrooms are really clean and nicely done and restaurant lay out is perfectly done.
