We stopped here while on our tour of winerys section of our NZ trip. Beautiful scenery. Awesome food. Great service. If you go, keep an eye out for the rifle they used to line up the Vineyard. They have it displayed on the wall. Also, the coolest bathrooms I've ever seen in my life.

We were a bit lost on our way to the restaurant and a lady from the restaurant gave the perfect direction - so a thank you to her is called for. The shuttle service was extremely efficient - we have literally just switched off the ignition and the shuttle bus was right behind us. Having said that, the short walk... More

The food here is fantastic. The view over the vineyard is spectacular and must be seen in real life. The wine tasting could have been a bit more comprehensive nevertheless the lunch more than made up for that

We popped in here as the view had been recommended, but we ended up doing a couple of tastings and buying a mixed case to be shipped home to the UK we enjoyed it that much! You can call in here for a coffee, for lunch or for a tasting and take in the view. There is some outside seating... More

After an invigorating walk up the hill (we could have requested the courtesy vehicle but decided to 'earn' our lunch instead) we arrived to a very warm welcome & magnificent views. We had been told that on a good day, you can see the North Island & luckily we were there on a good day!! Lunch was simply delicious &... More

Excellent food and great wine selection. Wine tasting was tremendous trying all the different varieties and finding out the history of the area and about the founders of the company. The views from the restaurant are fantastic and great for photo opportunities.
