Description: Rockferry Wines is owned by husband and wife team Tom and Fiona, proud producers of world-class certified organic wines, made right here in New Zealand. Our philosophy is to make real wines which speak of their home; to express the pure distinct flavours from our organic estate vineyards in Marlborough and Central Otago. It's the way we live. We welcome you to visit our team and taste our wines at our cellar door and restaurant in Marlborough. Based around seasonally inspired cooking and our range of organically grown wines, the cellar door and restaurant is a great showcase for the honest, down-to-earth produce that New Zealand's South Island is justifiably famous for. We look forward to seeing you soon

“Lovely setting, good service”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

What a pleasant lunch we had, and what is more for three mains, three glasses of wine and three desserts $113.00 seems incredibly reasonable. They are also child friendly which is important when out with a baby. We quite happily ate in a room off from the side where there was another family and while this means that you can't enjoy their beautiful garden it also takes the stress out of eating for both ourselves and for other diners.

While I felt my steak was rather overdone - they didn't ask how I would like it and I didn't think to say, the other meals were perfect. Their desserts are particularly good. Definitely a must if you are in Blenheim.

“Delicious luncheons and good wine”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

This winery has become very popular and deservedly so - it does pay to book in advance.
It has a good menu with delicous food and the portions are generous. The staff are very obliging and friendly and the wine is from the Marlborough and Central Otago regions. Tastings are available and the prices are reasonable.Would highly recommend.
