After an awkward first 20 minutes when we arrived to a hostess who seemed not to know what to do with us, we enjoyed a very special evening in the fine dining room. Paul (who is excellent) took us on a tour of the property including where the wine is made, followed by a tasting at the bar. Afterwards, we settled in for the degustation menu with wine pairing - admittedly pricey but worth it as it really was a delicious, informative and memorable experience. The grounds and the dining room are lovely. Service is excellent, very attentive but not overbearing. Food and wine were wonderful and plentiful (plan to take a taxi home!). We would recommend Herzog to anyone looking for a special night out in Blenheim.
