We went to Northburn as a group of around 30. They had a lovely fire roaring and great atmosphere established. Although the wines themselves weren't the best we have tasted, the food was very well presented and cooked. It was dark so we didn't see outside, although we have been there at lunchtime a couple of years ago. It is... More

We made an unplanned stop here on our way from Wanaka to Queenstown and were very glad we did. A picturesque setting on a clear shining day. Staff were attentive and very knowledgeable. The lunch platter showcased some excellent local produce; too bad there wasn't more, it was all too delicious!

Recommended by our hosts in Queenstown this won't have been on our radar had it not been so well recommended. Having driven over the range to Wanaka and then onto Cromwell, Northburn is a little harder to find compared to many vineyards in the region but the seclusion and setting were both magical. A warm blue skied day saw us... More

My Husband and I were staying near Lake Wanaka for our honeymoon and we chose to go wine tasting while there. We decided to stay toward the Cromwell region for our first day of tastings. We drove down the 6 hitting as many wineries as we could and returned up the 8 back into Wanaka. On our way back up... More

On the way to Queenstown myself and three friends stopped here for lunch. It's such a beautiful place, even going up the drive, with amazing views across to Cromwell! We waited about 10 minutes to be seated then were led into a lovely rustic dining room. We ordered a bottle of the Pinot Rose which was divine, breads and dips... More

I cannot rave enough about this place! This place serves one of the best food I had in NZL and the view from the shed is so picturesque with a cute little pond in front. Lovely service, food, wine and ambience! A must go if you are in the Crowmwell area. If you have the budget, don't give this a... More

We visited this winery while travelling around the South Island. The wine is superb and the goats cheese soufflé is to die for. The location is beautiful and my husband and I agreed it would be a fantastic wedding venue. Highly recommended!
