This is one of those serendipity stories. Young American travelling back to Nelson grinds farmer uprooting Apple tress. Falls in love with the place, arranges finance, works ground at weekends and finally makes wine. We loved several of them but in particular the Pinot noir

The lady owner here was excellent. The seeing of the vineyard and the views across the vines to the inlet were stunning. A very informative tasting which led to purchase of their delightful Rose. We have not been to rimu bar down at water front.

We were able to walk to this winery from our B&B and had a great time interacting with Thelma. She explained each wine she poured and made the whole experience lots of fun - and of course we bought some wine.

We had an excellent wine tasting and two fantastic pizzas and the platter between six. Patrick talked us through the wines. We will definitely return when next up this way!

Dear Gumtree - my sincere apologies. A family emergency left us short-staffed and with the throngs of people, we were overwhelmed. I encourage you to visit again so that we can show you a sample of the great wines Nelson has to offer. Regards, Patrick

Visited on a quiet afternoon, sat on the deck and tasted the wines, while admiring the view. Our host knew her wines and was delightful. Had to take some with me!

Visited on a sunny afternoon on an impromptu DIY winery tour through Nelson. Was great to sit on the sunny deck and listen to the quirky stories behind each wine. The wines themselves were delicious. Definitely worth a visit!
