“Above and Beyond”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We recently lunched here with friends, unfortunately I suffered a slight accident (no fault whatsoever of the restaurant) just after placing our order and had to leave to go to A & E. The staff and management couldn't have done enough for me and were genuinely concerned.

Fortunately we were able to return for lunch a couple of days later. We were very warmly welcomed and they seated us at the best table in the restaurant and served us with a comlimentary bottle of bubbles. Our French waitress Stephanie was fantastic and a real asset to the winery. The food was faultless; we would certainly return. Thank you Brancott.....very well done!

“Wonderful pairings in a magnificent setting”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

We had a late lunch at the Heritage Center. The restaurant is part of the tasting center and is on a hilltop in the midst of the vineyards. The views are terrific and provide a very nice setting to enjoy Brancott's selection of wines.

We had two tasting plates: the Sauvignon Blanc and the Charcuterie for Brancott Estate Pinot Noir along with tastings of three Sauvignon Blanc and three Pinot Noir. The pairings were excellent. The menu includes complete meals as well. The staff were helpful and knowledgeable, making our visit very enjoyable..

“amazing view for wine tasting”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

A must do while doing wine tasting in Marlborough. Do not let the high hill scare you. We walked up it, but they also offer a shuttle to drive people up and down. But that hill gives Brancott an amazing view, so well worth it! And who doesn't love Brancott wines?
