“Perfect summer lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

We went there on a summery day for lunch. Sat outside in the sun and sampled the wines. Clare, who,is front of house, explaind the wines and took us through the tasting. As the name suggests the restaurant is like a shed, with roll up clear plastic walls. You are literally next to the vines where the grapes come from.

Excellent recommendations from staff on food. Really liked the beef with chimi churi. For dessert, we shared a macaron, that was stuffed with chocolate mousse - divine.

The service was friendly and efficient. It wasnt busy on the day we went, as it was during the week. But we loved the food and wine and being able to soak up the atmosphere.

“Very friendly wine enthusiasts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2012 via mobile

We sampled their best vintage, which is $180 nzd a bottle, and $8 nzd for a taste. An amazing, complex, very European bordeaux-style wine. We spoke with Clair, the daughter of the founder. She was extremely knowledgeable about wine and wine-making and passionate. What an interesting person to talk to!
We did not eat there so cannot comment on the food. As with most vineyards on the island, there are lovely views over the vines.

“Lots of staff, bit too in yer face.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2011 via mobile

We only had drinks so can't comment on the food but the service was slow despite there being heaps of staff. Our drinks were served one after the other with a good delay between them and the hot chocolate was not good.
