We visited Stonyridge mid-afternoon for a wine tasting and a snack. NZ wineries charge for tastings and here there are numerous options which are not spelled out that well.
The great thing was the wait staff's ability to upgrade my order to "premium package" for a few more bucks even though we were half way thru. We also ordered a cheese plate that far better than our expectation and included tasty bits such as wild bees honeycomb.
The Cabernets that hallmark this winery will change your perception of NZ reds forever. We enjoyed a number of quality reds on the island but Stoneyridge is not to be missed.
Ps. The view down the valley with the winter sun warmth is most enjoyable
