I’ve been a regular here. I’ve seen them grow from month # 2 of the cellar door being open back in 2015 to now when the wine tasting experience is quite commercialised and faceless. The wine became better (thank you, the winemaker!) and the pizza is delicious but i’m not cominimg back.... it’s all about turnover & recovering more $$$ per customer now rather than having an interaction with your guests, providing them with experience and incentivising them for purchasing wine when you are already spending a lot on tasting ($40-50 a bottle). Which is particularly disappointing given how cool & groovy they were when they had opened. Also quite a contrast from Cambridge Road where you are always welcomed by Lance with open arms, great stories and excellent wine!
PS scaling up is often not good for retaining customers

This would have to be the worst service we have ever experienced at a Winery. The duty manager was completely uninterested in answering any questions about the wine, and was more interested in remiding us of his closing time. He was happy to sell us a bottle of wine 10 minutes before 'closing', and then put pressure on us to leave not long after opening it. Bad hosting. We did enjoy the pizza but unfortunately the service has put us off and we will not be back.

We had a great hour at Colombo recently. In these COVID times, there were no tasting sessions but the wine flights available were a great alternative. We tasted four wines and ended up buying a couple of bottles. Would definitely recommend a visit if you are in Martinborough

If you are wanting a relaxed afternoon with food and drinks this place is great. Lovely outdoor seating area.
If you are actually interested in wine, don't bother coming here. The only options for wine tasting were two flights, which were expensive at $30 & $27. We got one of each as we came to try wines. The wines were not of quality. We couldn't even force ourselves to finish them.

We booked for a party of 12 between Christmas & New Year. Very much appreciated the booking process. We hoped platters & pizzas would suit our party aged 2-95. Setting great. The food was good to great. Platters good (but not huge). Pizzas were great but our orders seemed to get lost so took over 80minutes to get 4 pizzas. Wine flights great. Pinot Gris was favourite among all adults

We visited on a Sunday and got there as soon as they opened. We hadn't made a reservation and all tables on the lawn/deck had already been reserved (so definitely worth making a reservation before you go) but we were lucky enough to get one of the tables they keep free near the kitchen.

Every single staff member came across happy, friendly and attentive. We had pizzas and a couple of glasses of wine. The pizzas's were amazing! The wine was very nice too and we ended up buying a bottle to take home. This is the perfect place to chill out on a nice day and they also do some very nice looking cheese platters which we didn't have time to try.

This place is also dog friendly. We will definitely make a reservation to go back on our next trip to Martinborough!

Wood fire pizza is always wins us over. The base was thin and crunchy to the bite. Relaxing vibe and good how it’s open later than the other wineries.

The wine tasting was fabulous. We left with bottles of the Pinot & Syrah.
Thomas was a great server and so informative on the regional wines.

Out of the five places we visited on our tour, this was my favourite.
They had a great selection of wines for tasting and very decent pours. We had pizza and cheese platters for lunch, all in a lovely outdoor garden setting.
Staff were nice, friendly, and helpful too!
Would highly recommend as the number one stop in Martinborough. Would rush back again.

What a lovely busy vineyard!
We cycled around the vineyards of Martinborough and this was the best.
Perfect Saturday in he sun, with every table supplied with and umbrella shade.
The wines where just super and the drought beer ( Martinborough hazy) was just the ticket.
The pizzas where cooked fresh in the pizza oven and where blooming delicious.

Remember to book, it gets busy, at is not surprising!
Awesome

Popular for a reason, we joined for no menu night with friends from out of town. The food was fantastic, the atmosphere and musician were awesome. Such good vibes. It had a busy rush but it was worth the wait. Well worth a visit here you won’t be disappointed!
