“Top winery experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

This really is a hidden gem. Luckily, it is signposted. You have to turn off the main road between Nelson and Motueka, apparently heading out to nowhere, and there it is. Limited parking. Small building. Wide verandah, several tables. Stunning view. Vineyard sloping down to an inlet of the harbor. We were served by Yvan, who was both charming and knowledgeable. The wines were excellent, too. We bought a mixed case. This really was a top winery experience. Strongly recommended.

“Magic in a Bottle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

We were wowed by magic at Rimu Grove...the wine, location and friendliness, second to none.
Every wine we tasted was very special...a must visit winery if you appreciate boutique, finely crafted wine, with a knowledgeable host. We look forward to enjoying the wine we returned home with!!

“Fabulous Location & Wines”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

We toured NZ in January & February this year and choose to visit Rimu Grove from a list of vineyards in the area. All the wines we tasted were excellent but we choose to buy the Reisling, we thought it was fantastic. Very friendly & helpful people. The only disappointment for us is that we cannot buy the wine in the UK!
